I agree. But I've always wondered if a successful production of the show elevates everything to real mythic proportions -- say, the way "Lord of the Rings" does -- so that none of the choices feel naturalistic and everything can be dismissed as if it's been kissed by the wrong kind of magic?

I haven't read ANY of those books. Not Tennyson, not White, nothin.

And so, I never really know: were these stories generally read as parables? Were they intended to be moralistic? Are audiences supposed to relate to these characters, or are we supposed to imagine that they live in an entirely different realm where typical emotional rules don't apply?
