“Just as poor Alonso Quijano, in middle age, was so bewitched by the novels of chivalry that he declared himself Don Quixote ... so the skipper of ‘Rocinante Cuatro’ in his own middlescence, was led by his passion for Cervantes’s novel to identify himself with both its hero and, eventually, its author.”
John Barth; The Tidewater Tales; Putnam; 1997.
