Re: Cervantes: Don Quixote
By the way, we're lucky to have the second part. Probably Cervantes didn't want to write it: from the end of the first part we cannot be sure of this. Maybe Avellaneda's Quixote spurred him to write the second part.

Someone mentioned the ending: I think it's quite moving, seeing Alonso Quijano again, and his being so sad and so sincere.
The world is full of obvious things which nobody by any chance ever observes.
