Don Quixote week 6 do two don’s make a right

Now the best section this weeks read is where Don Quixote is sat talking with Don Lorenzo .when he says he is a poet and starts reciting his poetry which is good but not wonderful but as ever our don Quixote is over the top he calls him the  consumptive poets
I ve started feeling sad this week our journey is nearly  3 weeks left .remember to join us on Wednesday on Twitter when there is a cook along of a traditional Spanish dish from the time me Don Quixote by Rachel of catalan cooking who teaches Spanish cooking in London and lived in Spain for 20 years .I will post recipe and photos for non Twitter users

DON QUIXOTE WEEK 6 IS THIS LORD OF THE RINGS ?

well we start again after a weeks break ,a graduate samson starts to question sancho over his master,we find out about the donkey and his return strangely,then the squire persuade his wife to let him and the Don hit the road again they travel to a new town Toboso ,in search of a lady the don wants to impress ,they are then in some woods then there are dark tales and magicians mentioned .

the end of this section again as a few times before had me recalling Tolkien ,he must have read Don Quixote dark wood and tales being told are some of the main parts of The lord of the rings . 

the song from Don Quixote musical .

WHAT DID YOU ENJOY ON WEEK 6 ?

Is there a connection between don and the lord of the rings ?

DON QUIXOTE a break !!

I ve decide to leave week 5 for a week to let every one that has fallen behind catch up so next monday will be week 5 ,hope everyone understands some people have fell behind my self inculde a busy family weekend left reading time very short .look forward to next monday and catching up with everyone

Don Quixote week five I m in a cage !

Not the best of times for the Don this section also we finished the first part of the book and marked the half way part of our read along ,we hear many new tales the tale of a rich farmer and his daughter ,a Shepard ,the don is brought home and there is much sorrow at his demise by those near him .

Two new things connect to Don Quixote have come to my attention this week ,the first is the polyglot project ,where you can try to read the Don in the original spanish and use their translation tool to get passages translated as you do so ,also I have got the due out soon OUP a very short introduction to spanish literature which I m reading at moment to give a bit of background to the Don also place it in the history of spanish book and where to go after the book .

How has your week been ?
