GOAT STORY - THE OLD PRAGUE LEGENDS

This story tells of the friendship between a young villager who arrives in medieval Prague, Jemmy and his Goat. The important conflict comes up when Jemmy falls in love with Katy – a street-wise girl from Prague. Goat is jealous, and starts to hate Katy. Jemmy works on the construction of the Charles Bridge, and later he helps Master Hanus, who is creating an Astronomical clock for the City of Prague. The work with Master Hanus allows Jemmy to meet and date Katy, who is a maid in master Hanus’ house. Having finished the Astronomical clock, Master Hanus is blinded by greedy Aldermen who don’t want him to be able to create another monumental Clock. Blind Master Hanus, with help from Katy, disables the clock but soon afterwards, he dies. And Goat is always jealous... Love and friendship between a man and an animal blend together with the second story of a poor student, Matthias, from the mysterious Faust’s House.
