Summary Chapter 38

Don Quixote continues to monopolize the conversation with his monologue, discussing why arms are superior to letters. He keeps forgetting to eat his dinner, though Sancho continually reminds him. The curate tells Quixote he is right to favor arms.

The women retire to bed. Don Fernando begs the traveller to tell his story.
