    Lecture 21 - Don Quixote, Part II: Chapters LIV-LXX Overview. Three issues related to the impending end of the novel define this lecture. The first one is improvisation, as we see it in the confluence of actual geography with current historical events: the expulsion of the moriscos, and the Turkish and Huguenots the story of Ricote, a kind of morisco novel in a .
