    I think you make an excellent point! I remember one of my theatre teachers explaining that this is why the Greeks gathered in such great numbers to see the retellings of stories like Oedipus or Antigone, even though they knew the stories so well! It’s also a great reminder that readers, first and foremost, want a story to be an experience. During the best stories, we’re right their with the characters our hearts racing as our emotions careen. And we love reliving those experiences!
