The history of generations reflects the generation of history. We face the same catharsis, regardless of what century or millennium in which we live: An avalanche of emotion. Built on survival, we search for traveling companions and the satisfaction of life. It’s all about who we are and our aspirations for who we want to become.
If one of the great icons of American literature is the American tragedy, then, certainly, Camelot—the tales of King Arthur—is one of the great icons of human tragedy. It is a story of the highest of human aspirations, the lowest of human depths of deception, and the karmic travail of redemption. There is forgiveness, but we simply can’t steal back time.
