‘For me alone was Don Quixote born, and myself for his sake; he knew how to act and I to write,’ Cervantes has written with his pen. And I say that for Cervantes to recount their lives, and for me to explain and elucidate them, were born Don Quijote and Sancho. Cervantes was born to narrate, and to write commentary was I made.

Esto fue un libro sumamente difícil de entender, no solo porque lo leí en mi segundo idioma, pero también por los conceptos super-abstractos que Unamuno persigue sin descansa. Es el último de los libros unamuneanos que quería leer, y puedo decir por cierto que admiro al hombre y pensador mucho más que disfruto de sus obras.

Clara crítica al positivismo y racionalismo de la época. Lo real está en el obrar; obrar movidos por la fe, por lo que queremos.
Para Unamuno, lo más ideal es lo más real y es por eso que cree que Don Quijote es más real que Cervantes. Personalmente, no me vendría mal un poquito de locura quijotesca.
