Silas Plum

This is the story of a soldier, misled and redeemed. His father is to the left, the stern patriarch and the all-knowing wise man. The soldier is in the center, moving right from certainty to doubt. He is open, friendly. The loss of this innocence is implied; a known quantity of war. The right is occupied by salvation, the nurse and bathing beauty. She is strength.

This is not the story of a soldier, misled and redeemed. This is the story of the myth of noble war, and the people who are kind enough to light the way back home.
