    • ALLUSIONS (1)

      • Commissioner: The new Don Quixote and his Sancho Panza.
        Referencing Don Quixote, from the novel of the same name (1605) by Miguel de Cervantes. Quixote is actually Alonso Quijano, a hidalgo who sets out to revive chivalry. He recruits a farmer, Sancho Panza to act as his squire. From him comes the word "quixotic," meaning to go headlong after idealistic goals and romantic deeds regardless of everything.
