Don Quixote for Beginners


This course introduces students to the overlapping realities and worlds that the novel encompasses to explore, through don Quixote's knightly ambitions of justice, love, and freedom, the similarities, and differences we see between ourselves and others, in a changing world where chivalry ideals, popular culture, history, and uprooted lives, and early capitalism dialogue to each other. Multiple characters raise questions about escapism, social justice, borders, and exile linking the present and the past.
