Parzival - A Journey of InitiationSéamus Maynard
In this new verse adaptation, the epic journey of the Parzival legend is traversed. As a figure, Parzival symbolizes the spiritual initiation of the individual human being in our age of consciousness, rife with the complexities and subtleties of a life fully lived. The Holy Grail, the singular aim that leads Parzival into the world, can be seen as a symbol of the transformed and the spiritualized human heart. Iambic pentameter was chosen for this rendering of the story - the poetic meter that most closely reflects the human heartbeat. The esoteric and spiritual underpinnings of this epic journey can support greater insight and understanding of the path of initiation.
