Part II of Don Quixote – Conference 1

Dr. White opens his discussion of part two of Don Quixote by showing how knight errantry is closely connected to Catholic life. He then introduces the audience to Dulcinea, a local farm girl who, in his warped imagination, Quixote converts into a feminine idol. And we learn how Sancho Panza, Quixote’s faithful squire, is prone to telling stories – white lies really, but he gives his master a new name, “The Knight of the Lions.” At the close of this conference, Sancho gets his wish to own an island and to be its governor.
