Companion Books (2)

Usefulness: 


This book is very useful since one can apply the thematic critique of love relations between men and women to Don Quixote’s many courtship and sexual tales.  By defining what romantic love is in the first place, from an Aristotelian perspective, one can take that definition and apply it to the book’s many male-female relationships.  By showing that true love is neither Altruistic nor narcissitic but egoistic readers, if they think creatively, can show how this manifests in Don Quixote.  Since good communication is a vital component of a healthy, growing relationship, one can apply the moral instruction found in this book to the written and oral communication found in the novel’s many partnerships (i.e. the successful and unsuccessful unions between people such as Don Quixote and Aldonza Lorenzo, Don Quixote and Dulcinea, Don Quixote and Altisidora, Sancho Panza and Teresa Panza, Cardenio and Luscinda, Dorotea and Don Fernando, Basilio and Quiteria, Camacho and Quiteria, Don Luis and Donna Clara, Leandra and Vincent de la Rosa, Captain Roque and Claudia Jeronimo, Marcela and Grisostomo, and the Captive Captain and Lela Zoraida).  More largely, since this book explores how physical chemistry and dynamic bodily attraction is crucial for a successful relationship one can crystallize how and in what ways this is important to men and women and apply this to the book’s many characters.  Another topic this book explores is lovemaking and how this solidifies a romantic bond between intimate partners.  This, in turn, helps readers understand a bit about the many sexual episodes in the book.

DON QUIXOTE EXPLAINED: THE STORY OF
AN UNCONVENTIONAL HERO

Usefulness:  


Grounds an understanding of Cervantes’s Don Quixote on other books with multiple authors and translators.  In my view, if one wants to understand the swirl of literary currents of the turn of the 20th century, insofar as they apply to a broad range of books from Robert Louis Stevenson, Mark Twain, Cervantes, Dante Alighieri, Victor Hugo, Shakespeare, Milton, William Blake, Shelly, Browning, Tennyson, Ibsen, Oscar Wilde, Louisa Alcott, Sherlock Holmes, and others, they should refer to this book.  In fact most of the literary analysis in this book comes from the personal reactions of people.  Certainly readers can draw a few good points about Cervantes’s Don Quixote from this compendium if they read astutely and selectively.  That said, however, it is not a simple, straightforward book on Don Quixote for the nonprofessional.  Even literary academics and scholars will only come to a clear understanding of Cervantes and Don Quixote if they are composing a very specialized and particularized monograph.  Though this book is useful for post doctoral graduates who wish to see how bits and pieces of data apply to Cervantes and Don Quixote, unless you are a very thorough and patient academic steeped in esoteric comparative literature, I would not recommend using it as a simple, general, primer to better understand Cervantes and Don Quixote.  If, however, one wants to understand how Cervantes and Don Quixote fits into critical reactions to the author and the book across the centuries, then this book is a good source for you.  

Format:  This essay book amalgamates newspapers articles from the British daily news, the British morning post, England’s the Nation, England’s the Speaker, England’s the Post, England’s tribune, as well as the Illustrated London News and the New York Times.  Other articles come from magazines such as Pall Mall, G.K.’s weekly, the Bibliophile, the Studio, the Bookman.  In addition this compilation includes excerpts drawn from book reviews from sources such as the bookman, the contemporary review, the limited edition club, and Empire review.  This compendium also includes one book reference titled the Great Victorians.  Another source of one essay comes from a book fair in London.  The last and final source of this book is from a pamphlet published by the British conciliate in London.
