I watched Ran this morning and I thought again of the madness of King Lear. Who is to be the Holinshed who chronicles our age, the post World War II age's immense trajectory, and tells the story of the madness of the first years of the 21st century?
Who will be the Shakespeare who uses it as the basis for his future dramas, set in the first era of technology when we believed our own dreams and nightmares, when we went insane and had no kind companions to talk us down from the precipices of our follies?

You all know in your hearts that our age will be a treasure house of tragic tales for future artists.
