Destiny... Do You Feel It?
Excalibur, the sword in the stone, knights in shining armor, royalty, love, lust, betrayal, magic... destiny. The Legend of King Arthur--though there are many different versions of it and stories within it--has it all. As one of the few works to escape The Dark Ages and into modern fame and recognition, it is a quintessential peek at the mythology of feudalism. Arthur's rise and fall encompasses a grand collection of conflicts, from the familial and friendly to the cosmic and cultural--even the supernatural. At the heart of it all is the concept of-- no, the idea-- the character, perhaps of Destiny. In this retelling, Jonathon Kendall will help you understand how exactly 'capital-D Destiny' fits into the greater narrative of humankind, and what it means to be Destined, rather than simply destined, by fate.
