This new verse adaptation of the Parzival legend by S amus Maynard was written with the intention of supporting all those wishing to understand the Grail mysteries more deeply. It is written in verse, so it can be worked with artistically as well. Class plays, group recitation, and individual artistic explorations are also possible ways of utilizing this work.


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, that singular aim that leads Parzival into the world, can be seen as a symbol of the transformed and 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.
