   This is the biography of an idea. The story of the epipsyche, or search for the soulmate in literature, begins in Ancient Greece, and is still being written in the present day. Plato’s Symposium is most often cited as the birthplace for the idea, which in countless television programs, popular films, and websites remains alive and well.
What is the epipsyche? In general terms, it is the literary expression of a thirst for union with a soulmate, a belief in love after death, an inevitable and inviolate joining of body and soul preordained by the cosmos, but mediated by individual will and understanding. I maintain that this concept of love has been present in literatures around the world for many centuries, and that it has captured the modern popular American imagination through the medium of film in particular.
