In Don Quixote, Cervantes does more than simply tell funny, engaging and warm stories about a knight and his faithful squire. Below the surface of the funny stories is a deep psychological analysis of what it means to pursue our life's goals.
John Roskam and Andrew Bolt discuss the book, its themes and style and the life and impact of Cervantes.
