Chivalry is dead?
Do you mean there are no more knights charging at each other to
win their ladys favour?
Perhaps its just as well theres no chasing after dragons or
feasting in armour...

Perhaps its just as well theres no chasing after dragons or feasting in armour at tables, round or otherwise. Anyone that has had the honour to read and comprehend the work of Miguel De Cervantes, Don Quixote must have thoroughly singed views on chivalry.
It tells the story of a man so embroiled with tales of knights errant that he loses his sanity and begins to believe himself a knight with a quest. Mounted upon his old, weary horse, he sets off with a lance. He is accompanied by a poor peasant who is unwittingly appointed his squire. Their adventures include charging at windmills (that the Don perceives as giants), getting into fights with innkeepers and townsfolk alike, harassing women that they attempt to save from their captors and other various misfortunes. The entire book covers several plot lines all of which consist of the good-willed Don failing all knightly trials. It combines with subtle tact a comedy of errors as well as a social commentary.
The book has been known as one of the most influential works of Spanish origin. The various interpretations that one can derive from this book has led to its wide success. The story of a misguided do-gooder who is constantly torn apart by what appears to be simple misconceptions, as well as sheer luck (or the lack of it) pulls at the cynical side of ones mind. Dark humour coats all the antics that are played out in the story. Antiquated knighthood that has earned for itself such high repute is shredded apart with every page.
Its hard to draw a resolute conclusion to the book. The entire work rings with a touch of the tragic, moulding whole new perceptions.
