A lot of Don Quixote’s “afflictions” are reminiscent of modern day geek culture.
I’m currently reading chapter 24, part one, and the fight between Cardenio and Quixote regarding Queen Madásima is straight out of reddit.
Reading the book in this light gives me way more sympathy for Quixote’s character–he’s a fangirl.
I like to use “le mot juste” inappropriately in writing.
My professors think i’m an idiot, but I always feel like a rebellious artist.
