equus alan monologue

Don't you be la-de-da with me, young man. There is room for reasonable people to disagree. I cannot go so far! An emotionally unstable young man trying to come to terms with his love and erotic attraction as well as religious like worship of horses. Furthermore, the way in which his religion developed as a result of the accidental influences of his mother¡¦s faith, the bed time stories she told him about Prince and his exposure to horses through Westerns, make us reflect on where our beliefs and value systems, which seem so well-founded ¡¥from the inside¡¦, have come from.

It still means something, you know. No, come round this side. Now look, Hesther, before you say anything else. Every time I heard one clop by, I had to run and see. I heard the noise of this chanting. This is primarily achieved by the close parallels between Alan¡¦s faith in Equus, where he chants for and worships a horse, and the Christian faith where hymns serve as the chants and they worship a God.
