Literary Love: I finished Don Quixote!

Don Quixote Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra



rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book was an OK read. There were some funny parts, some long tangents and some boring stuff.

Cervantes is making a critique of the books of chivalry that were being written by his peers at the time. He is trying to show the people of 1600s Spain that the tales are full of nonsense and if anyone actually believes them they are crazy.

“…for my only desire has been to have people reject and despise the false and nonsensical histories of the books of chivalry, which are already stumbling over the history of my true Don Quixote, and will undoutedly fall to the ground.” (p. 940)
