All storytellers are the sons and daughters of Aesop. In every tale there is a moral, a lesson to be learned. No matter how dark the proceedings, no matter how filled the story's actions are with angst, pain and suffering, or whether its hero lives or dies, or even whether his or her held position in the piece was is right or wrong, knowledge and a clearer path to life if offered to the rest of us. That is the function of storytelling, That is the unavoidable goal of its narrative art.
