Final project idea

Final project idea

For our project we have decided to analyze the female characters in Don Quixote more fully. We have spoken briefly on the female characters in class such as Dulcinea and the the Duchess, but we have not been able to explore them to a deeper extent. These characters, though they are small, have a great […]

Remembering Don Quixote

Remembering Don Quixote

It is interesting looking back on this semester and all that I have learned about Don Quixote. At the beginning of the year I only knew one episode from Don Quixote the iconic windmill scene. Now that I have read a large majority of the novel I feel as tough Don Quixote is not as … Continue reading Remembering Don Quixote

Don Quixote’s Reflection

Don Quixote’s Reflection

Throughout this semester, we’ve had the pleasure of  analyzing a magnificent character, Don Quixote. Many remember this man as a lunatic or even the inspiring knight he aimed to become. Personally, I view Don Quixote as a lost child, unable to give way to maturity who turns to escape reality through his knighthood fantasies. Ironically, the old … Continue reading Don Quixote’s Reflection

Examples being when Don Quixote stepped up for the boy being hit, let his horse decided where to go next, creating the story from … Continue reading The End

The end of the beginning

Reflection: I Am Don Quixote

Reflection: I Am Don Quixote

As the semester comes to end, so does the end of Don Quixote. This book influenced us in so many ways and I think many of us can agree with this.

In Memoriam

In Memoriam

At the end of the semester and the end of the novel lies Don Quixote, dead. Not dead in the sense that in time he will be forgotten by many, rather it is quite the opposite. After his initial death Don Quixote has continued to die for new readers each year since the creation of … Continue reading In Memoriam

Don Quixote: The End

Don Quixote: The End

Coming into this class, I never thought it was going to affect me the way it has. I became interested in a novel that I never even knew existed before my freshman year. Our class has learned so much about not only Don Quixote, but also lessons that will help us through our college careers … Continue reading Don Quixote: The End
