Don uixote I answered and looked into almost shocked facial expressions followed by uiet uncomfortable giggling What was the uestion 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 uestion 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 uixote 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 uixote 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 society where appearance and participation in shared activities are important to social survival and reputation than reflective thinking and expression of individuality He is off the main track and that is only acceptable to the world if you are a strong fighting violent hero not if you are a harmless yet ridiculous dreamer If you can t be one of the group you have to be stronger violent than the majority Just being different is the most dangerous the most hated thing in the world Still But I don t think there was much choice for Don uixote He had seen the raging madness of the world and made a decision When life itself seems lunatic who knows where madness lies Perhaps to be too practical is madness To surrender dreams this may be madness Too much sanity may be madness and maddest of all to see life as it is and not as it should be In the most famous scene of all the dialogue between Sancho Pansa and Don uixote reveals the deliberate choice to see in life than just the mere practicalities of food provision and businessWhat giants Asked Sancho PansaThe ones you can see over there answered his master with the huge arms some of which are very nearly two leagues longNow look your grace said Sancho what you see over there aren t giants but windmills and what seems to be arms are just their sails that go around in the wind and turn the millstoneObviously replied Don uixote you don t know much about adventures If you only have one life to live why choose the boredom of reality when your mind can create an imaginary adventure of giant proportionsWhat a wonderful match they are the idealist dreamer and his realist companion complementing each other perfectly while exploring the real world in the same way Dante and Virgil complement and support each other s thoughts while they explore the fantastic fiction of Afterlife in the Divine ComedyTo me there is heroism in seeing a perfect horse in the lame Rosinante or a beautiful woman in the ugly mean Dulcinea than there could ever be in the strongest superhero riding the most powerful horse and gaining the love of the most stunning lady That is a no brainer while it reuires deeper thinking skills to see the adventure and beauty in average weak ugly lifeThe moment Don uixote turns ridiculous and sad and uixotic in my world is the moment before death when he renounces his ideal in favour of the mainstream understanding of Christian comme il faut breaking Sancho Pansa s heart who in his own realist and practical way understands the world s need for characters like Don uixoteThe sanity Don uixote gains when he dictates his last testament is the capitulation of the tired worn out spirit He has already stopped living Another of my favourite windmill fighting characters Jean Barois foresaw the weakness of old age and wrote his testament to the world at the height of his intellectual power thus haunting the bigot winners of his dying body afterwards with his words of idealistic power from the other side of the grave And for all those who smile at Don uixote it is much braver and harder to fight inanimate mechanised windmills than fire spitting dragonsAnd you have to have than an ounce of Don uixote in you to try to review this book of superlatives

A book of parallels Don uixote 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 uixote and Sancho Panza inflict on each other through the course of this comic yet sad sometimes taleA second hand account translated from Arab historian Cide Hamete Benengeli that s how our narrator describes it the book tells the story of Alonso uixano 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 uests His excessive reading is reading ever too much takes a toll on his mind or his brains got so dry that he lost his witsWishing to seek for adventures and enforce peace and justice he renames himself Don uixote 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 puts on an old armor that had belonged to his great grandfather gets on his horse now called Rocinante and early in the morning starts his enterprise as knight errant After some muddles Don uixote ends up being severely beaten and is returned to his home by a peasant who recognizes him That is the end of his first sallyAt this point you can t help but ask yourself what really goes on inside of Don uixote s head Could he simply be deemed as crazy In every aspect but his love for chivalry it s noticeable how he s witty and sharp and this becomes clearer as the story goes on Putting aside the crazy card for a minute it s impossible not to wonder if and why he s possibly trying to escape reality Has he been unhappy or unsatisfied with his life He often talks about how one day a book will be written about him telling all of his great deeds Does he feel he s lacking accomplishments in life and therefore embarks on his imbroglio These are just a few of the superficial uestions this apparently simple book raisesAfter a short period of unconsciousness during which his friends burn most of his books of chivalry in a funny yet unsettling scene where the parish curate judge one by one if they re appropriate or not our clumsy hero decides that he needs an esuire and convinces his neighbor Sancho of joining him on his uests by promising him governorship of an nsula Here we witness the birth of literary s best relationship between a protagonist and his sidekickSancho Panza described as a farm laborer honest man but with very little wit in his pate leaves his wife and children to serve as uixote s esuire Big bellied a mouthful of proverbs and the ever faithful companion Sancho follows his master and obeys his wishes but not without speaking his mind until he is forbidden to since uixote can t take his blabbering any much to our amusement though the knight lifts his ban Matching Don uixote s supposed insanity is Sancho s so called stupidity Sure he s uneducated and illiterate but could he be called stupid or dumb He realizes very early that his master is delusional as far as his chivalry ways go and is often baffled by his actions but still never leaves his side is that because of friendship and his unwavering loyaltyOne of the most striking aspects of the novel is its language written in a playful and light tone almost evoking innocence Cervantes was able to make his readers go through moments containing some evil doings and violence without feeling any disgust some punches and kicks were rather funny and amusing And how was one supposed to witness Sancho s unfortunate encounter with the blanketers without any giggles Even being an one thousand pages book it never feels tiring to read it its episodic format constituted mainly of short chapters keeps you going on just for one Before you realize it you re three hundred pages deep already Contrary to popular belief that seuels are never as good as the original a second volume of Don uixote appeared in 1615 first volume came out in 1605 nowadays it s mostly published as single work and is just as good and has often been regarded by critics as better than the first installment for its greater character development and philosophical insights Written by Cervantes partially as a response to an unauthorized continuation of the novel this infamous part 2 is actually one of the matters discussed by Cervantes on his own seuel as Don uixote and Sancho find out through someone who recognizes their names that there s a book written about them After hearing some of the book s contents they dismiss it as being full of lies and injuries This was one of Cervantes innovations where characters were aware that they were being written about Don uixote ranks really high on best books ever written lists most of the time it stands proudly at number one Based on the number of adaptations alone dozens of films operas and ballets books that were influenced by it Madame Bovary by Flaubert The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy Gentleman by Sterne and The Idiot by Dostoyevsky to name just a few comics cartoons and even a painting by Picasso and a sculpture by Dal it becomes uite clear that it isn t without reason that Don uixote had an enormous artistic impact in the world and is considered to be one of the best works of fiction ever writtenRating simply put Don uixote is an undeniable masterpiece that s both amusing and thought provoking that never let me down 5 stars
