Plato’s Gorgias

This is a song written by a college student. The assignment was to take Plato’s Gorgias, a deep text concerning rhetoric and verity, and transform its substance in some creative way. This student put it to music. In addition he designed CD cover art and liner notes. When he’d finished, the student was proud to “own” Gorgias. He made it a part of his being. A masterful job!The notes feature the song’s lyrics as well as a wonderful quote from the dialogue itself. The cover is downright amusing, sort of American Monty Python!
