Tilting at Windmills

Illustration for article titled Tilting at Windmills

Have you ever found yourself jousting with windmills, fighting for the right reasons without the means to succeed? The adventures of Alonso Quijano and his steed Rocinante by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra are hot in the art world, but what about fantasy? The "sci" in sci-fi presumably acts like a vaccine against delusion, but are there any sci-fi heroes who misinterpret heroic or idealistic notions and fight the windmills of their worlds?
