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 think the poster is more striking for its redaction. We read from left to right, and someone or something has aborted the sentence and hope and tomorrow. The uncertainly increases along the mottled, gray pole and against fenced-off, empty stands facing shrouded trees, themselves acknowledged (and aborted) back in the lower portion of the blood-red poster. So hope must fight.

Happy New Year to you and yours.

Peter, thank you for your "reading" of the image - I really appreciate what you saw here.

Tom, the same to you and Lucy!
