El ingenioso hidalgo don uijote de la ManchaRead the classic Spanish epic by Cervantes as it was originally written even if you are just learning Spanish This Dual Language Interactive Alternating Chapter book offer a new way to read and learn a foreign language The patent pending GrokReaderTM interwoven and overlapping book format compels you to read the complete chapter in the original foreign language When you make it “Don uixote” I answered and looked into almost shocked facial expressions followed by uiet uncomfortable giggling What was the uestion? If my friends at the coffee table had asked “What is your favourite book Lisa?” and received that answer they would have nodded knowingly sympathetically adding some random fact about the 1000 page classic I claimed to love than the countless other books I have read But that was not the uestion It was“With which literary character do you identify most?” I was not the first one around the table to answer and there had been plenty of identification with the brave the strong the pretty the good the clever heroes and heroines of the literary universe before it was my turn I had time to think and to think carefully There is no one like Don uixote to make me feel the connection between my reading self and my real life Who else loved books to the extent that he was willing to immerse himself completely in the illusion of his beloved fiction against all reason? Who else struggled to survive and keep the spirit of beautiful ideas in the face of ugly mean bullying reality? Why was there such awkwardness when I said I identified with Don uixote? Because he is clumsy he is bullied by the brutal ordinary people who can’t stand a mind focused on literary thoughts and idealist ideas he is treated badly and made fun of He is so very UNCOOL He makes a silly figure in the ordinary society where appearance and participation in shared activities are important to social survival and reputation than reflective thinking and expression of individuality He is off the main track and that is only acceptable to the world if you are a strong fighting violent hero not if you are a harmless yet ridiculous dreamer If you can’t be one of the group you have to be stronger violent than the majority Just being different is the most dangerous the most hated thing in the world Still But I don’t think there was much choice for Don uixote He had seen the raging madness of the world and made a decision“When life itself seems lunatic who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness To surrender dreams — this may be madness Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all to see life as it is and not as it should be” In the most famous scene of all the dialogue between Sancho Pansa and Don uixote reveals the deliberate choice to see in life than just the mere practicalities of food provision and businessWhat giants? Asked Sancho PansaThe ones you can see over there answered his master with the huge arms some of which are very nearly two leagues longNow look your grace said Sancho what you see over there aren't giants but windmills and what seems to be arms are just their sails that go around in the wind and turn the millstoneObviously replied Don uixote you don't know much about adventures” If you only have one life to live why choose the boredom of reality when your mind can create an imaginary adventure of giant proportions?What a wonderful match they are the idealist dreamer and his realist companion complementing each other perfectly while exploring the real world in the same way Dante and Virgil complement and support each other’s thoughts while they explore the fantastic fiction of Afterlife in the Divine ComedyTo me there is heroism in seeing a perfect horse in the lame Rosinante or a beautiful woman in the ugly mean Dulcinea than there could ever be in the strongest superhero riding the most powerful horse and gaining the love of the most stunning lady That is a no brainer while it reuires deeper thinking skills to see the adventure and beauty in average weak ugly lifeThe moment Don uixote turns ridiculous and sad and “uixotic” in my world is the moment before death when he renounces his ideal in favour of the mainstream understanding of Christian “comme il faut” breaking Sancho Pansa’s heart who in his own realist and practical way understands the world’s need for characters like Don uixoteThe sanity Don uixote gains when he dictates his last testament is the capitulation of the tired worn out spirit He has already stopped living Another of my favourite windmill fighting characters Jean Barois foresaw the weakness of old age and wrote his testament to the world at the height of his intellectual power thus haunting the bigot winners of his dying body afterwards with his words of idealistic power from the other side of the grave And for all those who smile at Don uixote it is much braver and harder to fight inanimate mechanised windmills than fire spitting dragonsAnd you have to have than an ounce of Don uixote in you to try to review this book of superlatives
