Full Book Summary
The ingenious nobleman, Don Quixote of La Mancha, is one of the most famous characters from the rich body of world literature.
On je umišljeni lutajući vitez u potrazi za avanturama, slavom i romantikom. Čitajući popularnu i jeftinu literaturu o pdvizima lutajućih vitezova,
odlučije da i on postane lutajući vitez. Don Kihot putuje putevima Španije u potrazi za slavom i velikim hrabrim avanturama.
U jednom španskom selu, jedan sitni plemić, pedesetih godina, od prevelikog čitanja,
jeftinih kičerajskih romana o podvizima i junaštvu lutajućih vitezova, razum mu se toliko pomutio
odlučio da postane lutajući vitez, koji će da brani slabe i nemoćne i spašava nedužne device!
On više nije u stanju da razaznaje stvarnost oko sebe, nego je vidi u opisima zamki i zapleta iz pročitane kičerajske literature.
Although Don Quixote is described as a comic character, he is much more than that, as he exists as an inseparable part of everyone's human nature. He appears in people in every situation when desires and dreams of justice, bravery, fame, and romance collide with harsh and relentless reality. Through his appearance, it is shown how ideals of love, bravery, romance, fame... can be the result of great exaggeration to the point of impossibility.
Immediately after the character of Don Quixote, we are left with the striking presence of his loyal companion and squire, Sancho Panza. Unlike Don Quixote, he is just a simple peasant, for whom small material benefits are much more appealing than great knightly fame. However, there was something "Don Quixote-like" in him, which is why he readily accepted the reality of his master. Together, they became a remarkably unusual and unforgettable pair, who still ride the roads of literature to this day.
