  • Unrealistic Delusion Of Chivalry And Knight-Errantry By Don Quixote

    The fantasy world that Don Quixote rearranged his life around stemmed from the stories he read in his abundant collection of novels about chivalry and knight-errantry.

He embodies a knight errant, a chivalrous man of the sword, a classic archetype that is a key player during the feudal era, and one of the first things that comes to mind when we think of early Europe. Nonetheless, our knight errant Don Quixote exists in the wrong time, and if Sancho Panza wasn’t his squire and loyal companion he would be a two dimensional character in a one…

  • The Marriage Of Figaro Analysis

    As with anything surrounding the genius and mystery of Mozart and his creations, we can really only guess at the truth.

Bearing this in mind it is best to play it conservative and use the few facts and accounts we are given, take it with a grain of salt, and imagine what it could have been like to see Mozart work. One such piece especially shrouded in mystery is The…

  • Don Quixote Analysis

    Was the intent of Don Quixote’s author, Miguel de Cervantes, to make fun of chivalry or use chivalry as one of many tools to explore man’s ability to recreate himself? Being that his actions were delusional and often seen by those around him as out of touch with reality, the author showed us that the main character in Don Quixote was completely enamored by all the books he read and wanted to recreate himself.
