For professors teaching Don Quixote de la Mancha and for students who are reading this classic story, A Key to the Quixote offers a comprehensive guide to one of the greatest novels ever written.
During his teaching career, Dr. Larry W. Doman taught Cervantes' novel more than ten times to upper division classes and honors students. Student and peer appraisals revealed that the class was among the most highly evaluated, sought-after, and well-attended courses in the curriculum.
Dr. Doman wrote A Key to the Quixote as if he were teaching the class. The book includes many techniques he used, including a scholarly monograph on "Parody and the Quixote," class discussion questions, and portions from two outstanding student journals.
As an added bonus, Dr. Doman has included a novelette inspired by an episode from the Quixote. The philosophical psychological mystery, When Walls Fall, places the reader into the mind of a pre-med student who has a tragically overwhelming bias for order.
A Key to the Quixote is the perfect compendium for teachers and students alike.
