Summary of Don Quixote

Summary of Don Quixote

After this semester is done, I will remember Don Quixote in a fairly positive way. Although he caused a lot problems for himself and others around him, he defiantly had good intentions with his actions. He might have gotten himself and Sancho in many unfortuate events, but you could still tell that he was trying […]

Sancho as Governor

Sancho as Governor

In these last chapters of Don Quixote, we really get to see Sancho as a governor and how he handles that task. From my interpretation of the chapters we read, Sancho does well as a governor but then starts to do not as well. He begins his governorship with great leadership and is though of […]

Don Quixote and Sancho’s incompetence

Throughout the last chapters we had to read and even before that, I noticed how incompetent Don Quixote and Sancho really were. There are almost two many instances to mention that provide great examples of this and support my claim. Even though Don Quixote and Sancho were not the smartest to begin with, the introduction […]

The Duke and the Duchess’s Trickery

Throughout the readings for this week, one of the main topics raised in class was the fact that the Duke and the Duchess kept tricking and making fun of Don Quixote and Sancho.

Don Quixote in part 2

Don Quixote in part 2

From the lion incident to his talk of poetry with Don Lorenzo, I believe Don Quixote would have reacted very differently if those scenes were to happen in part one. The Don Quixote that we knew in […]

Mad* was mentioned 13 times along with other words such as crazy, insane, anger, wild, and […]

New Characters, Same Don Quixote

New Characters, Same Don Quixote

Many new characters were introduced in the beginning of part two. The introduction of these new characters to the novel did affect the story a little bit but as you read on in the second part, you can tell that Don Quixote has still not changed from his old self. Most things are the same […]

Don Quixote Has Not Changed

Don Quixote Has Not Changed

Since the beginning of the novel, it has been obvious to the reader that Don Quixote is crazy. From the previous reading we had to do, I thought he was changing and starting to grow out of his delusional tendencies but from the last reading, I realized that he was back to his old self […]
