Relationships in Camelot

Relationships come in many varieties. All are important. Camelot, the movie or the play, dramatically demonstrates the dominant role that relationships play in life. The drama revolves around conflicts between marital loyalty, Platonic friendship (King Arthur and Sir Lancelot), military alliances (the “Round Table”),  sexual desire and romantic love (Lancelot and Queen Guinevere).

The dream of the great society of chivalrous friendship and mutual protection and cooperation by the knights was destroyed by the dark forces of  jealousy, resentment, and revenge by the rejected illegitimate son, Mordred. The “Dark Ages” followed. What might have been the ideal civilization was brought down by the power of relationships!
