This thread is for the discussion of Chapters XX-XXV, based on the outline in Spark Notes.

(Remember with this particular book we all have very different versions, so double check where your book is with the Spark Notes lay out so we are all discussing the same topics)

I enjoyed these 5 chapters more. To have Cervantes enlighten Sancho that the princess Dulcinea is only a peasant is uplifting. There is a little bit of romantic sensitivity brought out in the old coot DQ. Inspiration of a loved one can make any woman a "princess." How Sweet!

I agree, I liked the last five chapters better too. It seems like the adventures are a bit more like 'adventures' instead of just attacking everyone.

I like that DQ has times of being afraid or jealous. I also like that he mentions to Sancho that many of every knight-errant's activities are folies, and that their loves are 'made in to' princesses. It makes me feel a bit more attached to the character to have him have more 'real' traits.
