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.

"... but writing."
This is quite a brilliant one. Thanks, Beth!
Happy New Year and get well soon!

I read a good portion of The Savage Detectives, I might have even read all of it, but I'm worried that I can't remember how it ended. I thought "How strange. This describes with eerie fidelity, and better than anything I've read my experience coming of age in the midwest in the late 70s."

Have never read Bolano. Will have to try him after that poem. Crummy about your cold, but the colors in your painting are a tonic on a very gray day here.

If you've never been rejected,you are not trying hard enough.
Glad you are feeling better.

Oh, what a wonderful blog post - Happy New Year, Beth, and feel better soon! I love the painting. And I love Bolano, but haven't read The Savage Detectives - and didn't even know he published poetry - wow!

that's a lovely painting!

Enjoy your tea and Bolaño, and be well soon. Nice loose brushwork--like it!

Okay then. Another one on the list.. .
love the energy of that painting. I hope you're feeling better soon.

I like your painting and the Bolaño poem, both full of life, energy and truth. Eat/drink lemons, oranges, grapefruit, sunny citrus cold cure!
