Parsifal (or Sir Percival) was a Knight of King Arthur. His story is told by the troubadours of France and Germany, notably Chretien de Troyes and Wolfram von Eschenbach. The Parsifal story stands between the past age that looked for secrets of the spirit and the coming age that was going to search for the secrets of matter. In this engaging retelling of the legend of Parsifal, Charles Kovacs's critical commentary offers Steiner-Waldorf educators an unrivalled insight into teaching the story of Parsifal and will aid in lesson planning. Based on Kovacs's extensive teachers' notes, this informative book places the Parsifal story in its greater social and historical context. In the Steiner-Waldorf Education curriculum this story is recommended for Class 11 (age 16-17) as a way of introducing world literature and one of the central problems of our time -- the imperative to learn to ask the right questions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is more than just a teacher's resource; the selected retelling is enlivening and the commentary both broad and insightful. Kovacs illustrates the relevance of Parsifal to our time in ways accessible to us all, particularly the [16-17-years-old] age group he was teaching.' -- Helen Branton, The Steiner Store, Autumn 2003
