We have known how to fly for centuries…
In the wellspring of wisdom that is Greek myth, a famous inventor and builder named Daedalus creates working wings. He shows us the possibility of flight. And he makes two pair, one for himself and another for his son. The gift makes for an elegant rite of passage.
The legend speaks of the father and son flying away together, across the sea on a beautiful warm day. But the myth ends with a story that Daedalus alone tells, after finishing the flight. But, did anyone else actually see Icarus fall?
Nonetheless, western civilization seems to have collectively decided to stay on the ground ever since. Icarus and the Wing Builder reveals the rest of the story, the parts that Daedalus chose not to tell.
Robert Case’s latest book re-imagines and completes the myth, showing us what really happened in the sky that day. It is a story of rites of passage, discovery, and the power of wings.
