DON QUIXOTE OF LA MANCHA
"The Colossal Battle With Certain Skins Of Red Wine"
A bit further on, our travelers rest under the shade of a tree, and the Knight of the Pitiful Countenance asks Sancho for news of his trip to El Toboso. His squire informs him that Dulcinea wants him to come to El Toboso, where she is waiting for him.
Don Quixote decides to conquer the giant Pandafilando of the Squinty Vision, return King Micomicón to his Kingdom, and then set out for El Toboso to join his ladylove.
But then they all see Ginés de Pasamonte coming towards them, disguised as a gypsy and mounted on Rucio. Sancho recognizes him, blocks his path and shouts loudly:
“Oho, thief! Get off of my ass! Leave what is not thine!"
Seeing himself discovered, Ginés jumps off the donkey and flees, but the donkey gives him a couple of kicks.
Sancho's delight at recovering his beloved Rucio is enormous; he hugs and kisses the animal, between sobs and tears.
On their way to the inn, Dorothy tells the curate and the barber of her love story with don Fernando, her fiancé, who was sent away from home by his father, a Duke, so that they couldn't marry, as she is only the daughter of simple farm folk. This is why she ran away, disguised as a boy, in an effort to become a shepherdess.
And with nothing further happening to them, they arrived at the inn, wherein Don Quixote was well received by the innkeeper and his wife. There they find the hound dog, who is very happy to see his master again, after so long an absence. Our knight retires to the same room that he had slept in the last time he was there.
The Licentiate Master Nicholas recovers his strength in the dining-room and Sancho goes up to see Don Quixote. Shortly thereafter, he comes down shouting:
"Hurry! Hurry! My master is engaged in the most frightful and bloody battle ever imaginable! He has just run through the giant enemy of Princess Micomicona! And he’s sliced off its head as though it were a turnip!"
Alarmed by Sancho's shouting, the curate, the barber and the innkeeper run Up to Don Quixote' s sleeping room, and there they find him destroying Some skins of red wine imagining that he is taking part in a fierce battle with the giant Pandafilando of the Squinty Vision.
After the colossal battle with the skins of wine, Sancho looks in vain for the head of the giant.
They all go out, leaving the worn-out old knight to rest in peace.
He dreams that he is taking part in a joust, held in honor of Dulcinea.
