“The play is an altogether unexpected adaptation of the ‘Don Quixote’ story. We started off with the hero, physically worn out by an attack of fever, and beginning his adventures, not because he is mentally unhinged by the reading of tales of knight errantry and enchantment, but because he is a great human man, whose whole soul revolts against injustice that is left unchecked in the world. In the last scene of the last act we find the touch of the Irish dramatist; for Lady Gregory has portrayed him as a man broken by ridicule. She knows that you can do what you like with the Irishman, so long as you do not make him a laughing-stock for silly men and women who are incapable of serious thought. This play is ‘Don Quixote’ in form, but is universal in its application; and it was played ... to carry its appeal into the sensibility even of those of the audience who have but the most hazy conception of what Cervantes aimed at in his masterpiece.”—Irish Times.
