A Terrific Obi-Wan Essay

As long as we’re on an Obi-Wan kick today, Becca at Coffee With Kenobi posted To Exist Is To Endure, a look at Obi-Wan’s character arc.

This reminds me so much of the scene in ROTS, where Obi-Wan hands the infant Luke to his adoptive family; Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru. As he does this, he relinquishes his role as teacher and resumes his former place as the learner. After all, this is what he prefers, is it not? He’s an impeccable warrior, who’d rather not fight. A mediator that has remained unrivaled throughout the war and quite frankly, would be more inclined to sit alone in a quiet cave and meditate. Ironically enough, that is exactly what he does over the next twenty years of his life, hence the name; Jedi Hermit.

    Becca is consistently wonderful, isn’t she? I always feel she writes what I think re SW philosophy and how they got there.
