Manto the prophetess …

In a very real sense, my desire to transform my ScreenplayPLUS into a film is also my pursuit of the perfection of Beauty.

In Goethe’s ‘Faust’, Chiron, the centaur, is unable to carry Faust directly to Helen, no more than he can appreciate how passionately he loves her. Instead, he carries Faust to Manto the prophetess.

She can help Faust find Helen, for when Chiron half sarcastically tells her this is Faust’s longing, she replies:

“Him I love that longs for the Impossible.”

Prophetess by Charles Landelle
