Goat Song is at first sight a retelling of the Orpheus myth the title is a literal translation of the Greek phrase which became the English word tragedy The narrator is a singer of old songs from Earth s distant past his lover has died the world is controlled by the computer known as SUM which communicates with its inhabitants via a beautiful spokeswoman and which also stores the personalities of the deceased in preparation for a future resurrection Our hero seduces the spokeswoman and is allowed to enter the castle where SUM is located to ask for the return of his woman His reuest is granted subject to the condition that he must not look back as he leaves the castle He looks back and loses her On his return to the outside world he preaches revolution against the machines and finally sacrifices himself to the female followers of a primitivist cultAnderson is uite a difficult author to grasp The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction notes that With dozens of novels and hundreds of stories to his credit all written with a resolute professionalism and widening range though also with a marked disparity between copious storytelling skills and a certain banality in the creation of characters Anderson is still not as well defined a figure in the pantheon of US sf as writers like Isaac Asimov from the Golden Age of SF and Frank Herbert from a decade later of about the same age and certainly no greater skill Part of the problem for me is the way he packed so much material into all of his stories For instance There Will Be Time published the same year as Goat Song is mainly about time travel has a substantial subplot in Byzantine history and features Anderson himself as an off screen character It s sometimes difficult to see the wood for the trees Yet only Joe Haldeman and Fritz Leiber have eualled his feat of winning both Hugo and Nebula for the same story three times and only Connie Willis has exceeded it with the likes of Le Guin Clarke Ellison Asimov managing the feat only twiceThis difficulty of grasping Anderson is demonstrated in his own account of the genesis of both Goat Song in his autobiographical collection Going For Infinity which turns out to be much a story about Harlan Ellison s Hugo winning story I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream At the Milford Science Fiction Writers Conference in 1966 attended by the likes of Gordon Dickson Richard McKenna James Blish John Brunner Anne McCaffrey Alan Nourse Ted Cogswell Phyllis Gotlieb amidst the smoky boozy noisy cheery turmoil Harlan Ellison got inspired took his typewriter into an empty room and began writing I remember he asked me about a point in Norse mythology and caught off guard I gave him a not uite correct answer but no matter This presumably explains why the giant bird from Norse mythology in the Ellison story is described as this Huergelmir almost but not uite like a name from the sagasThe story the memory of the party and of Jean Cocteau s film Orpheus crystallised in Anderson s mind to produce Goat Song About the only similarity between the two science fiction tales is the concept of human personalities preserved after death as data in a giant probably uantum mechanical computer system for eventual resurrection either into virtual reality or as downloads into new bodies Harlan didn t have a patent on it but it was pretty new at the time and I thought it proper to reuest his okay which he graciously gave Because of problems with the original buyer a well paying magazine which almost immediately folded presumably Worlds of Tomorrow whose editor Frederik Pohl is not mentioned even once in Going for Infinity Goat Song didn t see the light of day until published in Fantasy and Science Fiction in 1972Added January 2005 Ellison s account confirms Anderson s Poul Anderson dropped me a note several months ago explaining that he had just written a story he was about to send out to market when he realised it paralleled the theme of a story of mine he had read at a writers conference we had both attended just a month or so before He added that his story was only vaguely similar to mine but he wanted to apprise me of the resemblance so there would be no uestion later It was a rhetorical letter I m arrogant but not arrogant enough to believe that Poul Anderson needs to crib from me Dangerous Visions Ellison s preface to A Toy For Juliette by Robert BlochAnderson was wrong to think that the idea of personality storage in computers for potential later reincarnation was all that new A number of stories had already been published which used this concept most notably Arthur C Clarke s The City and the Stars first published in 1956 also Jack Vance s novel To Live Forever likewise first published in 1956 and re issued in early 1966 by Ballantine and in Roger Zelazny s short story For A Breath I Tarry first published in spring 1966 the story is the other way round his computer protagonist decides to become incarnated as a human Zelazny came back to this theme several times the human hero of his 1967 novel Lord of Light goes through the process of recording and reincarnation that the narrator of Goat Song seeks for his beloved and the Recall process in Zelazny s novel Isle of the Dead published in 1969 is almost identical to the resurrection process in Goat Song except that it runs via skull plates rather than bracelets It also crops up in another 1969 novel Robert Silverberg s To Live AgainThe Encyclopedia of Science Fiction gives me the following cross references for sf treatments of Orpheus Samuel R Delany s The Einstein Intersection Constantine Fitzgibbon s The Golden Age Charles Harness s Wolfhead Russell Hoban s The Medusa Freuency Tim Powers Dinner at Deviant s Palace and in particular Patricia A McKillop s Fool s Run To that list one would now have to add Salman Rushdie s The Ground Beneath Her Feet and of course Neil Gaiman s Sandman Out of this list I ve read only Powers and Gaiman but I suspect it doesn t matter too much because Goat Song relies at least as much on the Jean Cocteau film see review by Roger Ebert than on the original legend in particular the beautiful woman in a remarkable vehicle who is a mysterious intermediary with Death is a direct lift from Cocteau Orpheus in the film is a poet rather than a bard and in Anderson s story uotes other people s poetry rather than as in the legend composing his own music And in both cases Death or its representation as the computer SUM is much of an actor than in the classical mythAnd in any case the story is a libertarian parable than a retelling of classical myth perhaps Ellison s Repent Harleuin Said the Ticktockman is relevant than I Have No Mouth But I Must Scream I refer back to Clarke s The City and the Stars where as in Goat Song a young man from a mechanised unchanging city finds a new meaning for his life in a rural setting But whereas Clarke s Lys is a civilised country town Anderson s wilderness is very wild indeed a place where ordinary laws do not hold and where Clarke s hero discovers a spaceship and goes off to find the meaning of life leaving his home city to adjust to the discoveries he has made Anderson s hero comes back from his life changing experiences determined to smash the system in a rage against the tyranny that humans have imposed on themselves by handing themselves over to SUM His final self sacrifice at the hands of his fellow humans and indeed the earlier promise of a physical resurrection are both probably deliberately reminiscent of ChristianitySeveral other striking things need to be mentioned about the story The only two named characters are Thrakia the woman who eventually kills the narrator and SUM the computer he plots to destroy The narrator himself is never named and the two other women the Eurydice character and the Dark ueen are given epithets but no names This gives the whole story a mythical almost archetypal feel The other point mentioned earlier is that the narrator does not compose his own songs but uotes from Swinburne Brooke Dunbar Arnold Wolfe Wordsworth Shakespeare the Psalter and Tom O Bedlam This is partly to illustrate the way in which the mechanised city culture has cut its inhabitants off from their own cultural heritage It s also a bit of a relief in that many other authors have succumbed to the fatal temptation to try and compose their own verse to fit in with the plot Are you listening AS Byatt back to it now the only point I feel I missed in 2004 was Anderson s really inventive use of language the westering sun wanbright true wood of different comely grains Hoarfrost is gray on the steel shapes It s a story that would sound well when read aloud OMG So Taboo released by Famous

ThoughtCo Song for the Priz. This review is a bit of a ramble This was an interesting retelling of the Orpheus myth The long walk to the living word was excruciating reading because I knew what was going to happen That Harper should think a zombie was possibly following him seemed a bit ridiculous to me considering he has seen the Dark ueen up close and knows that SUM is capable of recreating a human and imprinting them with their original soul The ending with Harper walking out to meet the women was meant to be a parallel to the maenads who tore Orpheus to pieces Before Harper leaves to be killed he says The god must die that his followers may believe he is raised from the dead and lives forever Then they will go on to conuer the world This smacks of Christianity than Greek mythology A uick scan of Wikipedia tells me it s not actually part of the myth Anderson did put uite a bit in that I didn t even know I note that Harper never names his woman only using pet names when referring to her which I thought was a bit weird
