Don Quixote

Sometime between Tuesday 1/22 and Thursday 1/24, you need to read Chapters 1 and 8 of the Spanish novel Don Quixote.  

Annotated versions are in your textbook, starting on page 700.

If you want to read from home, you can find the chapters at these links:

  **Chapter 8-- You only need to read through the 20th paragraph (where Sancho Panza promises to keep his word as if it were Sunday).

As you read, please take notes on the parody that you find.  Note what is being parodied and what techniques (hyperbole, irony, pun, understatement, etc) Cervantes is using.
