Praise for Burton Raffel's translations For Balzac's Pï¿½re Goriot "Raffel's Pï¿½re Goriot is both faithful and beautiful, and that makes it a masterpiece." --Alain Renoir "I predict that this translation will give Balzac's great novel a new life for English and American readers. . . . The definitive translation for this generation." --Peter Brooks "[Raffel's] translation has the vigor and elasticity of Balzac's style, and catches with uncanny accuracy the tone of the period." --Guy Davenport For Cervantes's Don Quijote "[Raffel's Don Quijote] recasts the original into lively English, without losing the complexity and flavor of the Spanish. . . . This Quijote flows smoothly and reads, in fact, like original prose rather than a translation." --Adrienne Martin
