Abstract:

Eisner offers a collection of vignettes that show Don Quixote as a clownish madman whose escapades are slapstick and pointless. There is no Knight of the Woeful Countenance here-this is a Don Quixote whose popping eyes and snaggletoothed grin display a manic energy. If he is not the skinny visionary, neither is his horse the rack of bones described by Cervantes: Rosinante may be sleepy, but she looks in good condition. Even the not-so-fair Dulcinea is different: here she is transmuted into Dulcinea de Tobasco-a stout harridan who tries to sell the Don some salt pork. However, the greatest change in the story is the ending in which Cervantes himself appears in the bedroom of the dying knight to proclaim that Quixote's deeds "show people the value of dreams and dreamers!"
