#621

Can you guess what these literary works have in common?

“De Profundis” by Oscar Wilde
“Don Quijote de la Mancha” by Miguel de Cervantes
“The Travels of Marco Polo” by Rustichello da Pisa
“Conversations with Myself” by Nelson Mandela


#622

Is the answer possibly prison? Or written while imprisoned?
Oscar Wilde spent time in prison due to his relationship with a certain young lord and wrote and the letter while inside.
“Conversations with Myself” was written while Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on Robben Island.
“The travels of Marco Polo” was based on stories he told the author while in prison.
So far I know there is this link but for the life of me I cannot think of a link to Don Quixote unless he met Sancho Panza and Rocinante in the slammer lol…
Maybe I’m tilting at windmills…


#623

Absolutely correct, whoeverit! :clap:

Some literary critics doubt “Don Quijote“ was really engendered in prison, but the prologue to the first part of the novel states that “it was begotten in a prison, where every discomfort has its place and every sad sound makes its home”. It probably refers to the year Cervantes spent in prison for tax-related offenses in Seville.

I don’t see any reason to disbelieve it. :slight_smile:


#624

How many characters who have metal objects (sharp or pointy or cutting…) instead of or coming out of their hand/hands can you name?


#625

I’ll open the dance with
Edward Scissorhands
Captain Hook


#626

Is Dr.No one of them?


#627

Not really, his hand is just metal, not sharp or pointy or cutting.
But the other two are correct.
I’ll add Freddy Krueger to the list.
Who else?


#628

Wolverine had 3 Adamantium blades on each hand.
Catwoman had claws.
Lady Deathstrike had Adamanium claws
T X from Terminator 3


#629

Nice list @whoeverit
Also Logan’s daughter (Wolverinette :joy:) had blades on each hand.
Anyone else?


#630

I can only think of Candyman (hook for hand) and Ash Williams in Evil Dead (replaced his mutilated hand with a chainsaw).
If there’s no one else, we can consider this quiz answered and move on :slight_smile:


#631

I forgot one.
Bender Bending Rodriguez can use his hands as a circular saw. :rofl::rofl:
