Chapter I : Regarding what befell the narrator on visiting a theatre

The 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 reenactment 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 more and more drawn towards the happenings on the stage.
I continually shifted in my seat, and halfrose from it many times.
I kept want 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.

and 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 more 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 methat 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 This book wore my @ss out! It's funny and good and I love tomes but I don't think I was totally ready this time.
Whew .

The narrator was great on audio but I couldn't keep up in my book for reasons so I just listened.

Happy Reading!

Mel ❤️ Whatever else Don Quixote may be, I never found it boring.
Parts of it were very funny, others had wonderful similarities with Shakespeare, some bits were more serious: it's like a mini library in a single volume.

Overall, it has quite a Shakespearean feelmore in the plotting and tales within tales (eg The Man Who was Recklessly Curious, stolen by Mozart for Cosi fan Tutte) than the language.
In fact, the story of Cardenio is thought to be the basis for Shakespeare's lost play of the same name.


Very funnyslapstick, toilet and more subtle humour, with lots of factual historical and chivalric detail as well, but it doesn't feel especially Spanish to me.
Certainly long, but I don't understand why, supposedly, so few people manage to finish it.
Some of DQ's delusions hurt only
The DoubleEdged Sword

It is a doubleedged sword isn't it, reading great books too early in life?

If we read a book too early in life, we may not grasp it fully but the book becomes part of us and forms a part of our thinking itself, maybe even of our writing.
But on the other hand, the reading is never complete and we may never come back to it, in a world too full of books.

And if we wait to read till we are mature, we will never become good readers and writers who can do justice to good books.
so we have to read some good books early and do injustice to them.
Only then can we do justice to ourselves and to great books later on.

One is reminded of Calvino in Why read the Classics when we meditate on this.

Now the question is w “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 1000pageclassic I claimed to love more 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.

read Das Kapital with him as well which is almost twice this long like no thank you.
It was an okay book, I definitely enjoyed it more than I've enjoyed other classics I've picked up.
It kind of reminded me of reading Candide because it had that same sort of satirical tone.
Sancho was pretty amusing through out the book and Don Quixote's adherence to his belief that he was a knight was something.
Some parts were better than others and I think I did enjoy part one of this a lot more than I enjoyed part two.
The digs at whoever wrote the fake second part however through the actually second part written by Cervantes were pretty funny in their pettiness.
I just also t
