From the Paper:

"The title of Toole's book refers to a quote by Jonathan Swift about a confederacy of dunces rising against a true genius. Ignatius Reilly is everything that society does not respect or appreciate. He seems to be insane at times and develops the most outrageous ideas for changing the world. Ignatius is very similar to Don Quixote known as the Man of La Mancha. I will compare the book with the film to some extent. It seems that no matter what he attempts, Ignatius cannot fit into society. Ignatius is another Don Quixote since he is over-educated and cannot fit into a society that he despises."
