Don Quijote 7

So now that Don Quijote has seen Dulcinea he beleives she is under a spell because she is not beautiful. However, a wizard tells him that the cure to this curse or ugliness is through Sancho who must whip his behind “bared to the passing breeze” 3,300 times to undo the magic. Sancho queries, “What the hell has my ass got to do with magic?”

Sancho quite clearly states that he is not going to flagellate his buttocks for Dulcinea. Don Quijote, says Sancho better or Don Quijote will whip him himself and he’ll double the number. This wizard explains that this must be a voluntary sacrifice or it won’t work, though if Sancho tires of whipping himself after the first 1,650, he can ask for someone else to help. Also, there is no expiration date on this offer — the squire may take his time meeting the quota. In spite of these generous terms, Sancho says no to being a sacrificial lamb.

Don Quijote 6

The cathedral priest points out how the authors of these fantastic imaginative books of knight errantry and chivalry don’t even attempt to follow their own plot lines or any accepted rules of writing; but instead purposely aim at creating pages of mass nonsense and confusion.

That’s exactly how I feel about this book!

Don Quijote 5

I just don’t understand how Don Quijote is ever going to get the help he needs if everyone keeps playing tricks on him? Dressing up, kidnapping him and throwing him in an ox cart… Yeah that’s exactly what the mentallly ill need.
