The Travels And Adventures Of Benjamin The Third by Mendele Mokher Seforim

The book is a satirical novel that follows the whimsical journey of a simple, dreamy Jewish villager, Benjamin, who is inspired by "Don Quixote" and sets out on a quest for adventure and discovery. Along with his loyal companion, they embark on a series of misadventures, seeking legendary rivers and wealth, but instead encounter the harsh realities of the Jewish existence in the Russian Empire. The narrative humorously critiques the social and political conditions of the time, while also exploring themes of escapism, the power of imagination, and the human condition.
