Alonzo Quixano Otherwise Don Quixote: A Dramatization of the Novel of Cervantes, and Especially of Those Parts Which He Left Unwritten (Classic Reprint)
Within the last few days almost every dramatic critic has, in some form or other, asserted that the book we know as 'Don Quixote' cannot be dramatised. No doubt these critics believe they are agreed for once, and are puzzled - some of them, perhaps, a little pained - at their unanimity. And they are agreed as far as they go, only they do not go far enough. A little ahead lies a distinction which would relieve them from their unpleasantly cramped position.
For the critic who says, 'You cannot make a play of the 'Adventures of Don Quixote,' and the critic who says, 'You cannot dramatise the story of Don Quixote' are not agreed, however much they may think they are. The first is right: the second is wrong.
'How, then,' it may be asked, 'comes it that no successful adaptation has yet been made?' I think the question admits of a simple answer.
