Don Quixote
I've started reading Cervantes, Don Quixote.  Published in 1605 it has been translated from the Spainish and has a definitely modern tone of humor.  How much of this modernism is a result of the transaltion, I do not know. 

Here are some quotes:

Don Quixote, from reading tales of knight-hood, has become bewitched by and his life has become an imitation of, these tales.
"O Dulcinea, my princess!  Sovereign of this captive heart!  Grievious wrong hast  thou  done me by dismissing me and by cruelly forbiding me by decree to appear in thy beauteous presense.  I pray thee, sweet lady, to remember this poor enslaved heart, which for love of thee suffers so many pangs."
To such words he added a sequuence of other foolish notions all in the manner of those that his books had taught him, imitating their language as nearly as he could. 1

Here, after his lady is insulted, Don Quixote charges, with his horse, the taunters.  However, his decrepit horse falls and both he and the horse end up on the ground.  The taunters escape.  Don Quixote yells after them; 
"Flee not, cowardly rabble!  Wait, slavish herd!  It is not my fault, but the fault of my horse, that I am stretched here." 2

As I said, I've just started reading it and it is very long, 1000 + pages.

I would like to express thanks to you just for rescuing me from such a circumstance. Because of exploring through the online world and meeting recommendations which were not helpful, I figured my life was done. Being alive devoid of the strategies to the issues you have solved all through the write-up is a serious case, and ones which might have adversely affected my career if I hadn’t discovered your web blog. Your primary ability and kindness in handling every aspect was very useful.
