Don Quick Shot

I may not be the first to play on the name of the windmill-tilter nor the first to be surprised by the eruption of a good chunk of Cervantes in a 1959 printing of The Complete Poetry and Selected Prose of John Milton (with introduction by Cleanth Brooks) published in the Modern Library College Editions series.

On the left we are in midst of Book XI of Paradise Lost; on the right Of the Memorable Quarrel Between Sancho Panza, and Don Quixote's Niece and House-Keeper; With Other Pleasant Passages.

A bit disconcerting for the student. How very intriguing for the comparatist.

And so for day 1989
