Agapi & Other Kinds of Love

30.00
Agapi & Other Kinds of Love is a verse novel inspired by Plato's Symposium, written by Luka Lesson.

Socrates is telling a banquet of friends everything he learned from a mysterious lover named Diotima. The gods then take the reader on a journey - collapsing time to arrive in modern day Athens, where two reincarnations of the ancient lovers fall in love (again) in the midst of a riot, beneath the shadows of the Acropolis.

The lovers, both modern and ancient, then encounter the 7 kinds of love: Eros, Storgi, Filoxenia, Philautia, Filia, Pragma and the ultimate: Agapi. Self-love, erotic love, the love of the stranger and familial love, all collide with marble statues of Aphrodite, protestor's chants and the Parthenon's steps.

Equal parts rap novella and classical history lesson, Agapi shows us how love prevails despite the trials and tribulations of the ages.
