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.

I love her so. Thank you for writing this.

What a wonderful photo and tribute to Grace Paley. I knew of her of course but this brings her to life in a unique way, thank you.
