Summary of Don Quixote

Don Quixote is a middle aged hidalgo who has been so obsessed with reading knight-errant novels that he decides to be one himself. He firsts finds his nag, and then accompanies himself with his trusty squire, Sancho Panza. He explores the area around his village, fighting windmills that he believes are giants, and intercepting friars from the church. Sancho tries his best to correct his master's outlandish fantasies. Eventually, his friends drag him home. He escapes and continues his journey, fighting everyday items that, in his mind, are giants and other creatures.

Scene: Armour

Don Quixote is shown cleaning his armour. His nag, Rocinante, is shown standing behind him. Don Quixote's armour is an old set of armour, so he created an ill-devised visor to replace the original broken one.

Theme of Don Quixote

The theme in Don Quixote is to have a middle ground between you and others. When Don Quixote became a knight errant, the feudal times are past many hundred years. This conflict between the old and the new reaches an impasse : no one understands Don Quixote, and he understands no one. This theme can be applied to my life by finding this said "middle ground" in life. Sancho Panza is very good at this, and he acts like the translator for Don Quixote and the normal peoples.
