Cervantes Describes How He Boarded An Ottoman Ship During The Battle of Lepanto: Through Don Quixote, Cervantes projects his own thoughts onto readers by describing how he was captured during the battle of Lepanto.
Specifically, Antonomasia (Princess of the Kingdom of Kandy) Quixotic Novels Explains Cervantes asks whether the courage of a soldier is “equaled or surpassed when two galleys ram each other in the middle of the open sea, and once they are grappled together the soldier has no more room for his charge than the two-foot wide timber at the prow.” Through Don Quixote Cervantes continues that “despite this, and seeing before him as many ministers of death threatening him as there are guns being aimed [at him], and knowing that one slip of his feet will send him down to [the depths of the Mediterranean sea] he still, Andres – Books Guide From Quixotic Novels with an undaunted heart, sustained by the honour that inspires him, makes himself a target for all those harquebuses and tries to storm his way across a narrow bridge into the enemy vessel.”
Cervantes’s Poems: During the auto de fe of Don Quixote’s library, the Priest mentions that “Cervantes [had] been a good friend of his for years, and [that] he is more conversant with adversity than with verse.” Referring to his book, “Don Quixote,” the Priest says that it is “ingenious enough [since] it sets out to achieve something but doesn’t bring anything to a conclusion; [therefore readers] will have to wait for the promised second part [of the novel] so that from correction it will gain the full pardon denied it for the time being.”
