We covered the Greeks and personal responsibility, but it is time to start moving around the world with some of the most important and iconic literature surrounding war and society. We start with Tristan and Isolde which we will watch, discuss and take notes. It is a modern movie of an ancient tale. How might that change the story? What do we value most about war, love, marriage, government, patriotism, and heroism? Possibly Celtic, Persian, or Greek. Written down in the Middle Ages before King Arthur.
