Essays on Don Quixote

Don Quixote is a middle aged man from La Mancha in Central Spain.  He begins to believe that he is a great warrior here to defend against wrongful acts. He decides to take up a lance and sword after reading books about the exploits of medieval knights and goes out seeking adventures.  Giving up food, water, and shelter, Quixote seeks to please Dulcinea del Toboso, who in his mind is a princess.  The book tells his many adventures he endures while trying to please the princess.

Don Quixote is written by Miguel de Cervantes. Miguel was born to a poor Spanish doctor in 1547.  In 1575 pirates stole Miguel and his brother and sold them as slaves to the Moors. Only with the publishing of Don Quixote did Miguel finally achieve financial success. The first copy of the book was written in 1605, 25 years after he was ransomed and returned to Spain.

There are many character interactions within Don Quixote, the main being between Don Quixote and Sancho Panza.  Sancho was a peasant laborer who decides to become Don Quixote’s squire in his adventures.  Dulcinea del Toboso is the woman that Don Quixote pines for and is the princess in all of his adventures.  Known of but never seen, she is what drives him in every action, though she has no knowledge that he does what he does for her.  This an interesting twist on the concept of unrequited love so popular in literature from the 16th century (which would include the plays of William Shakespeare).

The significance of Don Quixote as the subject of academic examination comes from the manner in which it was written.  The novel was effectively divided into three parts, each written in a different manner.  The first section was written in the manner of a traditional romance, establishing the focus of Don Quixote’s behavior on Dulcinea del Toboso.   The second section is written as a sort of journal, documenting the day-to-day activities during the second part of Quixote’s first adventure.  The shift to the third part, commencing the second adventure, is written in a more traditional adventure novel format.  Cervantes’ skill in effectively blending these three techniques is truly remarkable and lays the basis of many academic essays.
