Abstract
Unamuno's Don Quixote, revived on the pages of “The Life of Don Quixote and Sancho”, is in many ways similar to the reading of this fictional character by Dostoevsky. Although both Unamuno and Dostoevsky use as base Cervantes' Don Quixote, highlighting his divine and heroic traits, some accents in their interpretations are placed differently. While Unamuno, offers a new reading of the character and his actions without changing, however, the facts related in the book by Cervantes, Dostoevsky creates a new character by moving the noble madman to the XIX century.

Keywords: Don Quixote., dream, Knight of the Sorrowful Countenance, Prince Myshkin, reality, self-sacrifice
