I’m now on chapter 7 of Don Quixote and I recommend it for all the same reasons I recommend Dracula to the average fiction reader, chief among which is: the humanity of the story is not bound to the time in which it was written, despite how strongly the actual content is.
It is a fucking wonderful book. If you have the ability to parse classic literature translation, it’s very easy to recognize how modern the comedy feels.
However, one demerit to De Cervantes for blatant and egregious comma abuse. I know it’s just How Those Books Are but c’mon man

“911, what’s your emergency?”
“Somewhere in La Mancha, in a place whose name I do not care to remember, a gentleman lived not long ago, one of those who has a lance and an ancient shield on the shelf and keeps a skinny nag and a greyhound for racing…”

Don Quixote
Some say the nobleman lost his mind. Others say he was just pretending. Did he pretend too long? Was he lost in his quest? Does it matter? We should not say he was false in his fantasy for he was a hero to many. Watch out for those giants Don.

The Art and World of Luis Quintanilla. This retrospective web gallery features selections from the life’s work of the Spanish artist, Luis Quintanilla. (1893-1978) As organized and arranged by the artist's son, Paul Quintanilla.
He was to paint one more major ensemble of frescoes. From September 1940 until June of '41 he was the "artist in residence" of the University of Kansas City, in Kansas City, Missouri. Here he painted six large panels, covering 375 square feet of wall space, in the Language Arts Building, which depict Don Quixote in the modern world. These are located in Haag Hall at the University of Missouri.
Don Quixote in the Real World
But for Don Quixote the greatest horrors are reserved. The world at the moment the murals were painted was plunging into world war. Fascism was international in nature and was not confined merely to Europe. The classic device of portraying a monster opening its maw wide and revealing the horrors within was employed. The Don is shown here standing by his horse, his pipe contemplatively held up toward his face, impotently surrounded by human horrors of all kinds. His face is honest, clear, and simple: unrecognizable to passersby on the street and unpretentious. And the vision we are offered is not the man on the street's but of the eternal outsider looking on.

Man of La Mancha posting?? 🥺🥺 I love the 1965 cast recording, it left a mark on my soul
It is my absolute favorite musical theater-type musical; I think only The Music Man begins to approach it. (But my musical theater experience is pretty limited).
The 1965 recording is on YouTube as a playlist!
