i Cryptic Crossword 1649 Quixote

May 23, 2016

A fairly well known poet, and if you didn’t know him, you’d probably have heard of his son. One clue that I found a little tricky to parse at 10d, but the answer was faily self-evident. One unknown at 15d, but lots of friendly checking letters. All in all a fairly straightforwad solve then, good for new and improving solvers, and for those of us feeling a little sluggish on a Monday morning.

COD? 25ac – ‘Lady excited about what has been provided by her lover proposing audaciously (8)’.

    A particularly good example of the kind of puzzle Quixote does so well, I thought. The book which contains 15d in its title has been languishing on my bookshelves for many years gathering dust: of all Hardy’s novels it’s the one most likely to go unread. My favourite today was 5d.
