This essay looks at the character of Don Quixote from the fictional perspective in the world he creates for himself and from the perspective of reality which he hopes to escape. The paper looks at his character from many perspectives and attempts to draw a line between his worlds of fiction and reality. While the paper includes an overall review of the book, the main focus is the character traits of Quixote himself.

From the Paper:

"Don Quixote is not really searching for wild, chivalric adventure. He is actually seeking the magic that lies within the invisible boundaries of his own heart-the only existing enchantment that can make the burdens of the modern world seem trivial, and the treacherous life of a humble soul seem quite worthwhile. Don Quixote grows tired of living in and out of what he wishes his life would be, and he is sick of striving for his aspirations with little result-always hoping, always dreaming, always intending to do the unimaginable, but never quite making it past the threshold of his own front door."
