Plato's Most Beautiful Myth
The Myth of Er. Read an excerpt from my new book, 'Plato: Letters to my Son'.
This he found lying about, neglected by everybody else. After this, the souls travelled through the scorching Plain of Oblivion and encamped by the River of Forgetfulness. Each soul was required to drink from the river’s water so as to forget all things, but the souls that had not been saved by wisdom drank more than was strictly necessary. In the night, as they slept, the souls shot up like stars to be reborn into their chosen life. As they did so, Er opened his eyes to find himself lying on his funeral pyre."
