Summary
When Rasselas and his companions leave "the happy valley," they are faced with everyday sufferings of those outside their idealist world. Coming to terms with this alien concept of misery, Rasselas and friends are confronted with their "choice of life"--A dilemma that raises questions about their purpose and about the human soul itself
