Don Quixote

This was an abridged version of the novel that I’d downloaded several years ago, finally deciding recently to take it off my roundtoit list. This is a wonderful comic novel, embracing the romantic nostalgia that fuels the Don’s fanciful mock battles but not endorsing it — the supporting characters in the novel are constantly discouraging him from indulging his madness. Is Don Quixote sympathic or pathetic? Probably a little of both, which is what makes him so intriguing.
