DonQuixote was a lanky old man on an old nag of a horse named Rozinante. His rusty armor makes me think a long time ago he was strong. This armor hides how old a feeble he is.

Don Quixote could have been obsessive/compulsive. Obsessive about knight-errants and their lives. He was very committed to his dream. His "IMPOSSIBLE DREAM."

Symbol?
I think the armor does hide how feeble he is to the world, but I also think that once the armor is on, Quixote himself no longer feels feeble. Maybe it helps keep him 'in character'.

PostSubject: the symbolism of the armor   Sun Nov 26, 2006 7:16 pm

Perhaps the armor is like supermans cape. He becomes who he wishes to be when in the armor. he 'rested' for a fortnight at home, most likely in his bed clothes, rember?
