24,90 €
In the midst of his books of adventures and characters of chivalry, Alonso Quichano escapes boredom by giving birth to his double, the knight Don Quixote de la Mancha. From then on, his life changed. From the arid plain of La Mancha arise knights, giants, armies that Don Quixote faces with bravery. Is it an inn or a palace? of a prostitute or a lady of the world? of a solitary fight or dance? Whatever ! In the delirious spirit of the hidalgo, only the fight against injustice and the quest for love guide his chivalrous hand and the steps of his horse Rocinante. What if Alonso Quichano's double had won the greatest existential battle - The one against boredom, conventions, the narrow codes of medieval Spanish society and of all society?
