Don Quixote
Classic Spanish story about an elderly knight on a quest

The Ingenious Nobleman Don Quixote of La Mancha or Don Quixote
Written by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra
1. Don Quixote, "The question arises whether it is not my solemn duty to give up this
sloth and luxury that the long devotion of my niece and housekeeper'
enforces upon me to the detriment of my duty. Rinaldo did not spend his
days reading books in an armchair. Nor did Orlando, nor did El Cid. nor
did Sir Lance-lot of England. No! They rode forth, armed cap-a-pie,
redressing all manner of grievance, ensuring justice, defying tyrants,
exposing themselves to danger ..."
2. Don Quixote, the Knight of the Rueful Countenance, having offered to
fight a lion and having charged a field of giants disguised as windmills
and withstood the temptations of many enchanters, is then challenged by
the Knight of the Mirrors who claims to have overthrown the boldest knight in all the world.
