I have been intimate with some who risked and with some who lost
life for causes to which they were devoted, and came to understand
that with many the political images in imagination were but the
psychic body of spiritual ideas.  Behind the open argument lurked
a spiritual mood which was the true decider of destiny.  Nations
conceive of themselves as guided or sustained by a divine wisdom,
and I have wondered in what manner impulse might flow from Heaven
to Earth.  Out of my meditation on this came The Interpreters.
Those who take part in the symposium suppose of the universe that
it is a spiritual being, and they inquire what relation the politics
of Time may have to the politics of Eternity.  Their varying faiths
have been held by many ancients and by some who are modern, but the
symposium has been laid in a future century so that ideals over
which there is conflict today might be discussed divested of passion
and apart from transient circumstance.  I was not interested in the
creation of characters but in tracking political moods back to
spiritual origins, and The Interpreters may be taken as a symposium
between scattered portions of one nature dramatically sundered as
the soul is in dream.
