  • El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quixote dela Mancha The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha or simply known as Don Quixote. The full title is indicative of the tale's object, as ingenioso (Spanish) means "quick with inventiveness“ marking the transition of modern literature from Dramatic to thematic unity. The novel takes place over a long period of time, including many adventures all united by common themes of the nature of reality, reading, and dialogue in general. Published in two volumes, in 1605 and 1615, respectively, Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature, and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published. 11/16/2013
  • Characters in the adventure of the lions: 11/16/2013
  • Alonso Quexana The title character of the novel, Alonso Quexana (named himself— Don Quixote dela Mancha) is a gaunt, middle-aged gentleman who, having gone mad from reading too many books about chivalrous knights, determines to set off on a great adventure to win honor and glory in the name of his invented ladylove, Dulcinea. Don Quixote longs for a sense of purpose and beauty—two things he believes the world lacks—and hopes to bring order to a tumultuous world by reinstating the chivalric code of the knights-errant. Initially, Don Quixote’s good intentions do only harm to those he meets, since he is largely unable to see the world as it really is. 11/16/2013
  • Sancho Panza The simple peasant who follows Don Quixote out of greed, curiosity, and loyalty, Sancho is the novel’s only character to exist both inside and outside of Don Quixote’s mad world. Other characters play along with and exploit Don Quixote’s madness, but Sancho often lives in and adores it, sometimes getting caught up in the madness entirely. On the other hand, he often berates Don Quixote for his reliance on fantasy; in this sense, he is Don Quixote’s foil. The two undertake many adventures where the hero thinks that windmills are giants; flocks of sheep are armies; inns are castles; and many more. 11/16/2013
  • Alzo Lorenzo/ Dulcinea del Toboso The unseen force driving all of Don Quixote’s adventures. Dulcinea, a peasant woman whom Don Quixote envisions as his ladylove, has no knowledge of his chivalric dedication to her. Though constantly mentioned and centrally important to the novel, she never appears as a physical character. 11/16/2013
  • Don Diego de Miranda On the part two of the novel, under chapter XVI, Don Quixote and Sancho meet Don Diego de Miranda, a gentleman dressed all in green. Don Quixote introduces himself to Don Diego and tells him about the history that was written about his first adventures. Don Diego marvels that knights-errant still roam the land and is glad to hear about the book, which he thinks might correct all the nonsense written in books of chivalry. Don Diego describes his life. Sancho begins to think the man is a saint and kisses his foot. Don Diego tells Don Quixote about his son, who abandoned the sciences in favor of poetry. Don Quixote responds with an eloquent speech about the value of poetry, which he compares to a delicate maiden. After the adventure with the lions Don Diego invited Don Quixote and Sancho in his house to meet his son, Don Lorenzo. 11/16/2013
  • The Adventures of the An excerpt Lions from El Ingenioso Hidalgo Don Quixote dela Mancha Like the windmills that are in disguised giants, flocks of sheep that are armies, inns that are castles, and the enchanted Dulcinea with her two ladies-in-waiting, the adventures of the lions is one of the adventures Don Quixote and Sancho faced for their chivalrous deeds. The Adventures of the Lions can be found in the part two of the novel under chapter XVII. 11/16/2013

When he recognizes the curds in the helmet, he accuses Sancho of Diego invites Don Quixote and Sancho to his home, and Don Quixote foul play, but Sancho replies that an enchanter must have put them there. accepts. Don Quixote hails the cart. The mule driver tells him that the cart carries two lions for the king. Don Quixote challenges the lions, and despite everyone’s protests, he insists on having the cage opened. Cervantes interjects that Cide Hamete Benengeli extols Don Quixote’s bravery before continuing the narrative. The others run away and the lion tamer opens the cage. Don Quixote faces the lions with “childish bravado,” but the lion just stretches and lies down again. Don Quixote decides not to provoke the lions. He calls the others back, and the lion tamer recounts the story of Don Quixote’s valor. 11/16/2013
