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.

Ah, good responses. Glad to see it.

What wonderful responses! I'm so glad.

I am a first time commenter. I discovered your blog years ago (through Language Hat, if I recall correctly). To me, Cassandra Pages is just a sheer pleasure: it's interesting, kind, thoughtful and (at least for me living on the other side of the Ocean) even a tad exotic. I look forward to reading more of your stories. Thank you.

Yes. Your blog is unique.

Sorry missed poll while traveling. I love your writing and art, and always feel I'm offered a small, exquisite bon bon when I see a new post. Thanks you so much, dear Beth.
