Dr. White opens with Don Ouixote’s discovery of cloth-draped statues of the saints. As he explains them to Sancho, he dwells on the story of St. Paul whom he describes as Our Lord’s greatest enemy and His greatest defender. Later, Quixote is defeated by Samson Carrasco, Knight of the White Moon. Now, with his vision of knight errantry failing, the aging Quixote returns home, no longer living in fantasy, and takes to his bed. Knowing at last who he really is, he makes a good confession and dies: the end of what Dr. White calls a profound Catholic book.
