By piecing the lives of selected individuals into a grand mosaic, storyteller Peter de explores the development of storytelling innovation over 3,000 years. A hugely ambitious chronicle of storytelling that Peter delivers with the scope that made his The Heroine’s Journey and Hero’s Journey project a worldwide success.
In this One Day Trip he starts with telling the stories of individual creators as Homer, Joyce, Delacroix, Picasso, Handel, Wagner, and Virginia Woolf, Peter assembles them into a grand mosaic of storytelling. In the process he tells us not only how great stories (and great art, film, literature, architecture and philosophy) is created, but where the great stories come from and how it has shaped and mirrored the stories within each of us.
In the second part of this journey Peter tells about the original history of man’s greatest adventure: his search to discover the world around him and tell new stories. In the compendious history, Peter not only traces man’s insatiable need to know, but also the obstacles to creation and the illusion that knowledge can also put in our way. Covering time, the earth and the seas, nature and society, he gathers and analyzes stories of the man’s profound quest to understand his world.
At the end of the day Peter introduces us to some of the great pioneering seekers whose faith and thought have for centuries led man’s search for meaning. Moses sought truth in God above while Sophocles looked to reason. Thomas More and Machiavelli pursued truth through social change. And in the modern age, Marx and Einstein found meaning in the sciences. In this epic intellectual adventure story, Peter follows the great storytellers from the heroic age of prophets and philosophers to the present age of skepticism as they grapple with the great questions that have always challenged man
