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.

Thank you for this introduction; "What We Ate After Passing the Cape of Eleven Thousand Virgins" gave me shivers.

Yes, "that poem" is gorgeous.

When 'that poem' arrived in the great tsunami of submissions for that edition Katherine and I just couldn't get over it, it was quite epiphanic! I am still astonished by the sheer volume and consistent quality of her writing, an embarrassment of riches really. Good luck with the publication, look forward to getting it.
