However, this objection, too, I believe, can be resolved. Though Cervantes, now just pages from his ending, insists Don Quixote’s judgment is improving, strangely enough we see very little of this.

With a new appreciation of his character, Cervantes is allowing him a measure of authenticity in recognition of the admirable and even noble qualities he really has, qualities now recognized clearly as they are compared to those of Avellaneda’s character. Angrily he must determine to terminate his novel as soon as possible, and to make certain changes.

After commenting on the various saints represented, Don Quixote makes this very enigmatic statement: This, all along, has obviously been the main reason for the change in tone noted since the departure from the duke’s palace: The anti-Romantics will of course insist that Don Quixote’s bold, unwavering words merely represent an imitation of the way in which a defeated, legendary knight would have responded.

This is the underlying cause of the final, inevitable transformation which is merely triggered by the plagiarist. Has he not, after all, himself been mocked as a physical cripple, if not a mental one, by one who has maliciously suggested that his proudest moment, Lepanto, has ceased to exist, as well?

The incongruity can be resolved, perhaps, in this manner: ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. The mockery and parody would seem to end here with the ideals -the aims- of chivalry now become, I submit, a real and accepted part of the dying Alonso’s being, since they are still a part of the dying Don Quixote’s being.


Cervantes’s ultimate willingness to see actual grief as the reason for the death of his brain child, speaks, as I have said, of his own thwarted idealism. We are then taken back to the duke’s palace for another playful skit with Altisidora.

In what way has Don Quixote conquered himself up to this point? The implications here are tremendous. Knight and squire rest. The remarks of all those critics who have stated that Cervantes in his Part II learns to appreciate, admire, and even love his character prove at this point to be well taken.

Next, Don Quixote is welcomed by the young Arcadians. Alonso Quixano’s search for the knight errant and the chivalric ideal is tied to Don Quixote’s search for Dulcinea, his ideal, and Don Quixote’s constancy which is evidenced in moments of doubt II, 58of defeat II, 64of despair II, 68of charity II, 71and even of hope II, 72cannot be impugned.

Don Quixote and Sancho are trampled by hogs. Outside the confinement of the duke’s palace, Don Quixote makes a stirring speech to Sancho on liberty. Don Quixote, who has, particularly since Chapter 58, gradually become a different person, steps outside of the parody transformed from buffoon to credible, disillusioned idealist, by virtue of his genuine grief over his failures.

If he does not offer a stronger, unmistakable display of this, it is probably because it was madness that was selling his potboiler, not idealism.

The idea that Sancho has been quixotizadorejected even by Allen, does regain strength here.

Sancho again tries to cheer him up. His fate this time is even worse: Sancho, on the other hand, despite his faults, being very much alive, wanting to live, and also wanting to believe, is still ready to believe, and so he half-believes half-hopes he and his beloved master shall find Dulcinea one day behind some bush. Cervantes, like Don Quixote, has apparently fought his last battle, and he, too, -just as disillusioned as his protagonist- is ready to surrender and even die.


Because of this powerful, dual view, his entire great novel can rightly be considered in retrospect -and is justly so by many- simultaneously funny and sublime. In doing so he reviews the debate between those critics who take the Romantic critical approach to Don Quixote and those who lean toward the anti-Romantic approach.

Cervantes has fully noted, acknowledged, and accepted the humanity and worth of his mad knight, and in the end he is no longer asking us to laugh at him, for he himself has stopped doing so.

Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. He has apparently at this point not given up any of his ideals. At this point in the novel a strange event occurs, causing the careful reader to pause and suspect that a significant change in Cervantes’s attitude toward his character has really occurred.

This is crucial, I believe, in determining just what Don Quixote rejects on his death bed. Cervantes barely manages to stabilize the structure of his parody -at least to add to its humor- long enough to end his book. Amazon Advertising Find, attract, and engage customers.

Tirant the White, too, had died a proper Christian encantdaa and willed his enormous wealth to relatives and friends. Allen, in his praiseworthy attempt to define Don Quixote as hero, quotes him as saying: Alonso Quixano’s admission to the error of believing is not rendered in a sorrowful, regretful tone just because he realizes he has been foolish and has misled Encabtada, but also, we may have good reason to suspect, because learning that knights-errant do not exist in his time and have never existed has saddened him.
