"Fiction becomes truth when it is believed in, and the power of naming and believing in anything cannot ever be denied".

I think I would have to disagree with you on that. Cervantes is showing us that while someone believes something to be true, and acts upon it, an outside observer [us the readers] knows the truth.

We the readers are the omniscient god of the story while Quixote is the hapless actor toiling under delusions.
Sorry, didn't mean to come across as all, "your review sucks". I thought it was really good. Just had to comment on that one sentence.

Shhh don't point out flaws in reviews I wrote at 1 in the morning hahaha.
I think my point is more that in modernist fiction there is an element of how fictions exist around everyone so that it can be difficult to separate fact from fiction. Much like in this: http://www.sccs.swarthmore.edu/users/00/pwillen1/lit/borg&i.htm

This is great. It makes me want to listen to The Man of La Mancha.
