Miguel de Cervantes' novel, "Don Quixote", is a mixed genre that entails humor, joy, comedy, brutality, sadness and tragedy; but love is the most common theme throughout the work. The paper shows how we see this theme reflected in the relationship between Dona Clara and Don Luis, who desire love more than life itself. Furthermore, Sancho and Teresa provide us with an example of love that stands the test of time and patience. The paper shows that "Don Quixote" may be many things, but most of all it is a love story.

From the Paper:

"We also see an instance of true love prevailing over all with the situation of Camacho's wedding. In this scene, we see how true love prevails only through trickery. While it is known that Quiteria loves Basilio, she is marrying Camacho for his wealth. It takes Basilio on his deathbed, however fake it may be, to convince Quiteria to marry the man she really loves. As he confesses his love for her, she tells him, ""whether thou livest many years, or they carry thee from my arms to the grave" (II.XXII). Here we see what lengths a man will go to get the woman he loves."
