Knowing Kenobi: The Hermit

Description

Part 2 of 3. Our summer series focused on Obi-Wan Kenobi continues! Charlotte and Caitlin continue to examine the character through the archetype of “the hermit.” How does is Obi-Wan a guide to characters such as Anakin and Luke and even Ezra? In what ways is he a work in progress? How does Obi-Wan embody that figure? In which ways does he defer? We discuss how Obi-Wan is introspective and whether or not he is even allowed to be so. All this and more on this episode.
