Thank you so much for this post, especially the links to the opera. Just what I needed to read and look at and think about before I go out walking in the woods on an overcast spring morning in the far northwest corner of Washington State. Looking forward to reading the text you are writing to go with the charcoal drawings that I thoroughly enjoyed.

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.
