Goat Song 1967


Ariston, a young heroic Spartan, is cursed ___ and blessed. All who see him, declare that Ariston personifies the Hellenic ideal of male beauty. During the time of the Peloponnesian War ___ a period of dynamic energy, burgeoning culture and festering decadence___ the male body is worshipped as godly on the battlefield and slave market, in the temple and the brothel. Goat Song is the story of a young man who must use his physical attributes to survive. It is also a story of Socrates’ discourses and Alcibiades’ revels. It tells of the conflict between Sparta’s brutal code and Athens philosophic sophistication. Caught between these contradictions, Ariston   is forced to choose between his manhood and his passions.
