audience at the first performance It was a lively and entertaining re enactment featuring the knight errant Don uixote and his erring suire Sancho Panza and many Out From Under of their adventures were recounted As I sat in the theatre watching the performance I found myself and drawn towards the happeningsn the stage I continually shifted in my seat and half rose from it many times I kept wanting to intervene to give Don uixote a fine new coat The Fifth Season The Broken Earth 1 of armour for example and to exchange theld shaving bowl he wore The Earned Value Management Maturity Model on his head for the real Helmetf Mambrino which as an avid reader with a large library I knew exactly where to find I wanted to give his horse Rocinante a really good feed so that he would have some flesh n his poor bones though I also knew that his and his master s bony condition had saved them already from being eaten by a hungry lion I wanted to give Sancho Panza an even larger role in the story with longer speeches proverbs and greater pportunity to influence events I wanted to go back. This version is from Volume ne Shorter Second Edition f Th.

Syaikh Abdul Qadir Al Jailani one tell me this book is hilarious I can t believe it took me so long to finally pick it upDon uixote is densest in the early chapters which are packed fullf footnotes that should be read for full context I highly recommend using two bookmarks Superman Vol 1 one for your place in the story andne for in the notes If this seems too much like hard work I want to reassure you that the notes become less freuent as you progress through the book but they add some very helpful background information in the beginningIf you don t know what it s about Don uixote follows the titular character and his lovable suire Sancho Panza as the former declares himself a knight errant and goes looking for noble adventures The context is important here because at the time f the novel chivalry romances like Amadis De Gaula had become so popular in Spain that monarchs f the time feared the influence Ride The Savage Sea of themn the impressionable minds Stress Sant Et Rendement Au Travail of young people Cervantes responded by writing a parodyf these knightly adventures Don uixote has read so many Fundamentals Of Corporate Finance of these books that they have had a profound effectn his mental state He gets caught up in a fictional world created by his imagination and truly believes that not nly is he a knight but the inns he encounters are castles the prostitutes are princesses and the windmills are giants This latter is apparently an iconic moment in the novel and I can definitely see why it is so funny I read it through about five times and laughed each time I think it s the way I hear Sancho saying What giants in my mind that cracks me upThe adventures do feel repetitive at times and I don t feel like either Part 1 r Part 2 needed to be as long as it was The buffoonish suabbles get The Art Of Tony Millionaire old after a while However I really enjoyed the switch to a meta style in the second part which the notes will tell you was published some ten years after the first In this Cervantes explores the ideaf characters knowing they were being written about and the book takes a philosophical and arguably darker turnI read some critical interpretations alongside the book and I found Edith Grossman s especially interesting She says she saw Don uixote as a terribly depressing book Nabokov too called it cruel and crude that s the guy who wrote about the stalking and raping Light Of The Nations of a child And though there are many momentsf humour I don t disagree with them There is something undeniably sad about this book tooMaybe it is sad because this man is so deluded so wrapped up in fictions Maybe it is the way he allows himself to be deceived and the ways Guro Guro 1 others take advantagef this chance at deception But I think personally that it is sad because none The Drifter of it is real Don uixote wants something admirable to do good defend the weak and defeat the bad guys but it is all in his naive imagination I don t know what was truly intended by the ending but unlike some I don t see it as a final victory Instead I see it as a sad lossf something important Either way I am glad to have
