Online Lecture Series by Enrique Pardo on the god Pan.
July and August 2020.
The figure of Pan is clearly of archaic and wild, even coarse origin; it is one of the few divinities of Greek mythology that maintained its animality, its zoomorphism, and a certain distance from the anthropomorphic civilization of the Greek Olympus – one feels like calling it : “humanist”. He remained half man, half goat, sometimes with the latter’s pungent smell: rustic, savage, brutal. When he was born, his mother scurried off in panic upon seeing she had given birth to a hairy creature with goat’s feet and two horns.
