Download JB A Play in Verse 107 Y More important the play sparked a national conversation about the nature of God the meaning of hope the role of the artist in society. A play presented in verse is a very ancient art form and not one frankly that many today would gravitate toward Add to this that this play takes as its template a book from the Old Testament of the Bible and it can sound than a bit off putting to the modern reader This is unfortunate however because this work and it biblical precedent the Book of Job engage uestions that not only interest the faithful but indeed bear directly on the very experience of being human For example if suffering is an unavoidable and integral part of the human experience and all belief systems and philosophical systems acknowledge that it is then how do we assign meaning to it or should we attempt to do that at all This is much than a conceptual argument because suffering is much than a concept it is a personal experience that is inevitably encountered and hopefully endured But being human we tend to do than just seek to endure it We also are inclined to contemplate it and ask Why This contemplation occurs not only when we ourselves experience suffering but also when we observe it occurring in the lives of others At the very least it affects our life experience and in doing so contributes to our aggregate worldview In this sense I found this play to be a masterful treatment of the abiding uestions associated with suffering And one need not be a person of faith to draw useful lessons from this modern work any than one needed to believe in the Greek gods to draw lessons from the plays they presented in verse many centuries ago
