The Role of Will, Will of the Wisps



Will, of the Wisps, is a strange little man with one peculiar talent; he sheds gold. Of course he also has to restock the gold that he sheds, but that is another story.  Will is liked for his free dispensing of gold.

Will also is surrounded in flames which are sometimes muted, at other times quite pronounced in empathy to his excitement at the moment.

Will wanders into the story early in its telling, annoyings the Ferryman and makes friends with the Green Snake.  The Ferry man dislikes him because of his gold, the Snake like him because of his gold.  Suck is the world.

Will’s gold plays a subtle but essential part in Goethe’s fairy tale, enabling the Green Snake to interact with the Old Man with the Lamp and the cave’s Three Kings of Bronze, Silver and Gold.  Were not for that meeting, the Snake might not have become the catalyst for the changes that followed.  And the changes would not have happened.

While Will’s presence is essential to initiating a series of events key to the fairy tale, we have to note that Will has his own agenda.  He fulfills his goals at the end of the story, having a better understanding of what and how ‘change’ works for the benefit of others.
