Example text

Antes ha dicho que “la libertad es uno de los más preciosos dones que a los hombres dieron los cielos”, causa por la que Sancho, ya al ver su casa, afirma que don Quijote regresa “vencido de los brazos ajenos, pero vencedor de sí mismo”. Poco tiempo después, don Quijote muere, rodeado del amor de los suyos. Lo llora, con dulces y a un tiempo amargas palabras, su fiel escudero, Sancho. ¿Qué sucede? ¿Por qué don Quijote ha de volver a ser Alonso Quijano, el Bueno? ¿Lo asesina la realidad? Él ¿sólo puede vivir en su fantasía?

La actitud de don Quijote vive todavía. Dichosa edad y siglos dichosos aquellos, afirma don Quijote, a los que los antiguos pusieron nombre de dorados, porque en ellos no se conocían estas palabras de “tuyo” y “mío”. Don Quijote se ha convertido en un símbolo y ya es más que un personaje de ficción. Se ha vuelto inmortal, como lo es el propio Cervantes. a. v. f.
