abstract

This paper establishes connections between Don Quixote’s inns and the origins of English theatre, especially with London’s Inns of Court and the possibility that the character of Don Quixote and his world are inspired by ‘The Prince of Purpoole’ and his imaginary kingdom, created during the Christmas celebration at Gray’s Inn in 1594. Gesta Grayorum offers an account of the Festivities during that year.
