The character of Don Quixote is referenced often in today's world. He might be nearly 400 years old, but he is hard to avoid...it seems someone is always tilting at windmills somewhere.
After hearing Quixote mentioned recently in different contexts, I've begun to wonder if Don Quixote, as a symbolic figure, represents more than one idea and if this character might mean different things to different people. Though we probably all usually assume that this literary figure represents one, solid and single idea, I think it is worth asking a question or two to find out if this is actually the case...
- What does Don Quixote represent to you?
- Is there one simple idea that he symbolizes or is he representative of a broader set of ideas?
- What one or two word phrase sums up the meaning of this literary character for you?
