Don Quixote: World Classics | Miguel Cervantes

I‘m stuck in the 20th century as far as literary critique of this one goes; critics in that era came to view the story as a tragedy, where Don Quixote‘s simple idealism is rendered useless by a harsh reality. Sure, there are plenty of quick quips and slapstick encounters, but really, the truth at the heart of the story is terribly sad.

That's a pretty cool find! I wonder if they'll add this new found chapter to new editions

Littens! I have been out of pocket due to midterms followed by a whirlwind 48 hour trip to NYC with my older daughter. My first time to NYC, so of course I had to visit The Strand! Purchases = the script for Betrayal, the play we saw on our trip, for Katie and a Strand tote for me.

Amiable Love the Strand! How fun for you! 2d
PirateJenny Oh! You saw Hiddleston! 😍 2d
mom2bugnbee @PirateJenny I'm about to post about that, even though it's not technically books. 😉 That was the reason we went - he is my older daughter's fave actor, she's a senior, you only live once. 😍 He, his co-stars, & the play was stunning. I'll never forget it! 2d
PirateJenny @mom2bugnbee A friend and I are considering going (our office is ten blocks from the theater). We should get off our behinds and get tickets! I'm so gla the two of you went! 2d
mom2bugnbee @PirateJenny You should! All three were amazing. 2d

Not impressed. Reminded me of why I don‘t like Dutch literature😔 Conversations I can‘t imagine anyone actually having and in general dry and emotionless language use. Maybe the Dutch language just isn‘t suited for passion...
I did like the story itself. It‘s about guilt, the desire to DO something, about being naive, about learning to see a parent as just another human being.

Deifio The cover looks just like my Cerny piano sheet music! 🤔 3d
LittleBug @deifio Hope that‘s more fun to play than this was to read!😉 (edited) 3d
