    He claimed to have written many ballads and he especially liked one he mentions about jealousy, but many of his verses were lost or are unidentified, and only the ones he included in his other works remain. The aforementioned characters sometimes tell tales that incorporate events from the real world, like the conquest of the Kingdom of Maynila or battles in the Eighty Years' War. He becomes convinced that Dulcinea is under an enchantment that has turned her into an ordinary peasant girl. She disappears into the woods, and Don Quixote and Sancho follow.

    As Part Two begins, it is assumed that the literate classes of Spain have all read the first part of the story. From his readings and studies, he becomes by degrees interested, then obsessed, with the codes, deeds, and tales of chivalry — of knights errant on some courtly and idealized mission. Practical in most things, compassionate to his social peers, the local clergy, and the servant classes, Quixano is respectful toward the ruling classes, whom he unquestioningly accepts as his superiors. He attacks them, only to be severely beaten and left on the side of the road, and is returned to his home by a neighboring peasant.

    Samson had hoped to get the Don back home to safety by disguising himself as a rival knight. A project promoted and led by Fernando de Prado began in to rediscover his remains. Another vital element is the appointment of Sancho Panza as governor of an island — another elaborate prank that ends with Panza renouncing the life of a feudal governor and showing a deep layer of loyalty to Quixote. Fact Check We strive for accuracy and fairness. He must also, when opportunity offered, have been familiarizing himself with Italian literature. Cervantes' own life was extremely eventful and colorful.

Miguel De Cervantes Don Quixote book

Unlike most Spanish writers of his time, including some of humble origin, he apparently did not go to a university. Don Quixote decides to emulate him to prove his great love for Dulcinea, and he sends Sancho to deliver a letter to her.

The stranger is revealed to be Don Fernando, and the young woman Lucinda. Don Quixote is given a bed in a former hayloft, and Sancho sleeps on the rug next to the bed; they share the loft with a muleteer.

Despite his disability, however, Cervantes continued to serve as a soldier for several more years.

His aim in writing Don Quixote was, according to his own notes, to describe the manners and mores of the time and to tell the story in a clear and simple way. Their second adventure lasts for three weeks and is comprised of a series of events that comprise the balance of Book One.

Perhaps with a recommendation for promotion to the rank of captain, more likely just leaving the army, he set sail for Spain in September with letters of commendation to the king from the duque de Sessa and Don Juan himself. He is driven neither by ambition for wealth and position nor bitterness at his genteel poverty.

But by the following year, Cervantes had put his pen aside and, instead, picked up a weapon, joining a Spanish military unit in Italy. But in spite of all his good intentions, Quixote's quest leads him to be returned home, imprisoned in a cage on an ox-cart by his village priest and barber for Don Quixote's own good.
