  • Normality In The Goat

    Think of tradition, convention, and normality. These are parts of society that allow people to bond over commonalities and provide a basis for the culture that each person exists in. Each factor of society allows people to interact on a normal, day-to-day basis, and serves as the general foundation for civility.

In The Goat, Albee presents the main character Martin, who, on the surface, appears to be your everyday, average, family-man. He is a middle-aged architect that has friends, family, and success.

However, many small things are happening that clue the reader in that something else is going on. What Albee does is simply set up this rather mundane scene for the bombshell of news that Martin is about to drop on Ross, and in turn, his family. When Martin…
