I'm kinda fascinated with the idea of a rather tempestuous novel about Greece emphasizing your irrational, this tempest stirred by an old man, a debater, who's always using reason to put down those who come to challenge his ideas. The old guy remains in the background, but he drives the principal characters crazy, ironically, instead of making them see "reason."

Just a thought.

Yes, let's see! Perhaps the old man could be named... Socrates?

The life of Socrates is a great illustrator of the dual nature of life in Athens, Greece in 400 BC. Socrates-- a very rational man-- was sentenced to death for promulgating new ideas in opposition to traditional Greek religion!
