Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

Nice! And now we're all on tenterhooks, awaiting part two! I'm eager to read this, having just now finished Elizabeth's Spencer's 'Landscapes of the Heart." I'm fascinated now by Southern settings in a way I never have been...well, I did love Faulkner in college, but that's about it. Love your "cruel, ingenious insects," a hint of delightful words, phrases, lines, paragraphs, etc., to come.

Thanks, Beth--

Had some more of those picture comments! Now I'm telling everybody that we hand out black T-shirts and glasses whenever people come over!

Laura, I'm looking forward to lunch with Elizabeth Spencer in May... Though my father detested Faulkner and thought him unjust to the South,there are things about his childhood that feel Faulknerian to me.
