The Panzas

The Panzas

https://www.todocoleccion.net/coleccionismo/don-quijote-mancha-acetato-original-coloreado-sancho-teresa-panza-rucio-cuervo~x827459 Sancho has always been such a lovable character. I have always thought of him as a gullible, fat, little kid throughout this novel because Sancho has always seemed so innocent. Sancho has proven to be a loyal squire to Don Quixote. After all the time Sancho spent with Don Quixote, Sancho definitely learned to […]

Sancho FanPost

Sancho FanPost

Oxford dictionary defines leadership as, “The action of leading a group of people or an organization.” The key word that stands out to me in this definition is ACTION.

Symbolism and Changing Characters

This blog post will attempt to explain the connection between Homer’s trojan horse in the Iliad and the horse that Don Quixote and Sancho Panza ‘ride on the their quest’, as well as examine the change in Don Quixote and Sancho’s characters’ development. […]

Overlooking the Obvious

Overlooking the Obvious

There have been instances, rather many and varied, where don Quixote should have, in my own opinion, been able to pick up that what’s happening around him is a ruse. A farce set up by the duke and duchess to have their fun. One such occasion being when don Quixote drew a parallel between Clavileno […]
