      Epic Stories?



      [ You mentioned that stories have always been told and that they always
      will be told. Which among them do you see as the enduring epic stories?
      ]



      What is a story without the listener; a play without an audience to ride
      upon? What does the audience demand? They demand the things which they
      can respond to and feel to be a part of while also having that element
      of inspiration. But they want it write large. And those stories which
      endure the longest are called the Epics. Two that I know of which grab
      each new generation as they come along, and can be adapted and modified
      for all times and all generations are The Iliad and Camelot. And you
      don't find all the trials, tribulations, challenges, passions,
      politics, romance, writ more large than in those two epics; and there is
      always somebody in the story that each member of the audience can feel
      an empathy towards. They will always endure in the public imagination.
      So, they are timeless stories which never grow stale or out of date.
      Like music and like poetry the story must have the power to lift the
      audience to a place which the normal work-a-day world does not take them
      to. And do they not hunger for just that?
