    Finally, from so little sleeping and so much reading, his brain dried up and he went completely out of his mind Why did no one tell me this book is hilarious I can t believe it took me so long to finally pick it up.Don Quixote is densest in the early chapters, which are packed full of footnotes that should be read for full context I highly recommend using two bookmarks one for your place in the story and one for in the notes If this seems too much like hard work, I want to reassure you that the notes become less frequent as you progress through the book, but they add some very helpful background information in the beginning.If you don t know what it s about, Don Quixote follows the titular character and his lovable squire, Sancho Panza, as the former declares himself a knight errant and goes looking for noble adventures The context is important here because, at the time of the novel, chivalry romances like Amadis De Gaula had become so popular in Spain that monarchs of the time feared the influence of them on the impressionable minds of young people Cervantes responded by writing a parody of these knightly adventures Don Quixote has read so many of these books that they have had a profound effect on his mental state He gets caught up in a fictional world created by his imagination and ...

    Don Quixote , I answered, and looked into almost shocked facial expressions, followed by quiet, uncomfortable giggling.What was the question If my friends at the coffee table had asked What is your favourite book, Lisa , and received that answer, they would have nodded knowingly, sympathetically, adding some random fact about the 1000 page classic I claimed to love than the countless other books I have read But that was not the question It was With which literary character do you identify most I was not the first one around the table to answer, and there had been plenty of identification with the brave, the strong, the pretty, the good, the clever heroes and heroines of the literary universe before it was my turn I had time to think, and to think carefully There is no one like Don Quixote to make me feel the connection between my reading self and my real life Who else loved books to the extent that he was willing to immerse himself completely in the illusion of his beloved fiction, against all reason Who else struggled to survive and keep the spirit of beautiful ideas in the face of ugly, mean, bullying reality Why was there such awkwardness when I said I identified with Don Quixote Because he is clumsy, he is bullied by the brutal ordinary people who can t stand a mind focused on literary thoughts and idealist ideas, he is treated badly and made fun of He is so very UNCOOL He makes a silly figure in the ordinary societ...

    I first finished Part I of Don Quixote fifty years ago, and, although I never got around to reading Part II, over the years I managed to convince myself that I had I suspect this may be true of many other readers as well, for when people share their favorite parts of the story, they invariably mention the battles with windmills and wine skins, the inn courtyard vigil and the blanket toss, but hardly ever bring up Don Quixote s vision in the dark cavern, the manipulations of the Duke and Duchess, the wise decisions of Governor Sancho, or his master s fateful final battle with The Knight of the White Moon Yet it is here, in the second part, that the world of Quixote inspiring in its romance, sharp in its realism, magnificent in its variety becomes surprisingly post modernist and uniquely profound From the first, Quixote is complex and subtle It is never a crude contrast between a crack brained pretender to knighthood and his slow witted squire Quixote is only crazy on the subject of knight errantry, and Sancho, although na ve and illiterate, is a shrewd man filled with proverbial wisdom albeit often inaptly applied In spite of misfortune, they are never mere comedians slipping on the banana peel of existence every slapstick trouncing they receive offers them yet another opportunity for reflection often while literally on their backs, smarting from their recent wounds , and it is these discussions, filled with plausible arguments and vast logical gaps, that...

    A book of parallels, Don Quixote by Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, through two of the most emblematic characters ever conceived, discusses what s imagined and what s seen, the ideal vs the real, the conflicts between illusion and actuality and how these solid lines start to blur by the influences Don Quixote and Sancho Panza inflict on each other through the course of this comic yet sad sometimes tale.A second hand account translated from Arab historian Cide Hamete Benengeli that s how our narrator describes it , the book tells the story of Alonso Quixano, a country gentleman around fifty years of age, retired, who lives with his niece and a housekeeper in a village of La Mancha A big chivalry tales enthusiast, he spends most of his time reading books Amad s de Gaula, Orlando Furioso and Tirant lo Blanch, among others about knights and their unending courage and dangerous quests His excessive reading is reading ever too much takes a toll on his mind or his brains got so dry that he lost his wits Wishing to seek for adventures and enforce peace and justice, he renames himself Don Quixote, designates Dulcinea del Toboso as the lady of his heart for a knight errant without love was like a tree without leaves or fruit, or a body without a soul

    Cambiar el mundo, amigo Sancho, que no es locura ni utop a, sino Justicia Antes de comenzar a escribir mi rese a de este libro maravilloso, debo pedirle mis sentidas disculpas a don Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, puesto que considero una falta de respeto el no haber le do su Don Quijote de la Mancha mucho tiempo antes de todos los que le y revision mucho despu s, especialmente y teniendo en cuenta de que me considero un lector de cl sicos Entonces, por qu no empezar por el cl sico m s importante de todos No dir que es algo imperdonable, pero si lo considero una falta grave Adem s, aclaro que una novela de semejante calibre merecer a una rese a acorde a su relevancia y aunque no puedo aventurar que sea tan extensa como la obra, tratar de hacerlo de la manera m s sentida posible.Don Quijote de la Mancha es considerada la primera novela moderna en la historia de la literatura, de eso no hay discusi n ni vueltas Podr amos considerar que hay antecedentes que nos remontan a la poca de las epopeyas griegas, pero estas est n escritas en hex metros y no poseen el cuerpo de una novela propiamente dicha.Otro antecedente se le atribuir a a Los cuentos de Canterbury el Decamer n pero estos est n orientados m s al cuento aunque posean un hilo conductor en...

    Can I tell you a story only it may take a little time because sometimes a thousand trifles have to be recounted, as irrelevant as they are necessary, for the true understanding of a tale. Chapter I Regarding what befell the narrator on visiting a theatreThe comic operetta Don Quixote was being performed at my local theatre and I was amongst the audience at the first performance It was a lively and entertaining re enactment featuring the knight errant Don Quixote and his erring squire Sancho Panza, and many of their adventures were recounted As I sat in the theatre watching the performance I found myself and drawn towards the happenings on the stage I continually shifted in my seat, and half rose from it many times I kept wanting to intervene, to give Don Quixote a fine new coat of armour, for example, and to exchange the old shaving bowl he wore on his head for the real Helmet of Mambrino which, as an avid reader with a large library, I knew exactly where to find I wanted to give his horse Rocinante a really good feed so that he would have some flesh on his poor bones though I also knew that his and his master s bony condition had saved them already from being eaten by a hungry lion I wanted to give Sancho Panza an even larger role in the story, with longer speeches, proverbs, and greater opportunity to influence events I wanted to go backstage and meet with the producer and perhaps get a glimps...

    done quixote pun quixote fun quixote none quixoteand that s not entirely true there are some rollicking good times in here, but the first part is so much endlessly episodic violence, and while the second half becomes calmer and focused, it never got my imagination engaged nor my blood flowing.in fact, although i know he really does love it, i can t help but feel that brian s recommending this to me is similar to the duke and duchess having their fun with don q i feel like brian is pulling a prank on me that he does not want me to meet my reading goal and is laughingly crowing, no, karen, you will not read 150 books this year i am preventing you i will show you despite the amount of time i was stalled on this one, i will come right back in the game.but this, i did not love this and a lot of it is just context i can appreciate it as an artifact and as a foundation for western literature, but it suffers from the fate of any work that was not edited professionally tastes change over time just in the same way that marilyn monroe would have probably had to drop fifteen pounds to rock our modern day underfed runway ideal, so this book could lose a similar amount...
