Symposium By Plato
eBook (ePub): $2.99
(1 Ratings)
Do You Really Know Anything About Love? Unless you've studied the classics, you don't know what you've been missing. These days there is a great deal of talk about diversity and equality, in both... More > gender and preferences. A discussion held well over a thousand years ago can teach us more than we might suspect. In this work, Love is examined in a sequence of speeches by men attending a symposium, or drinking party. Basically, party-goers celebrating Agathon's first victory in a drama contest decide to do something besides drink themselves into a stupor because they are still paying for such activity the night before. Socrates joins the group on this second night, and it is decided that each man in turn will offer his praises to love. For a reader (and especially a writer) of Romance works, this might just explain some of the questions that our modern novels raise. Or, it's just a chance to get another feel-good read in during an afternoon. Scroll up and get your copy now.< Less
