    Summary

    There were twelve princesses once, who so frightened their father by destroying their shoes, that he offered princes a kingdom for the secret and death for failing to learn the truth of them.

    Quite simply they danced every night. It wasn't the end when the truth came out. Not for any of the princesses.

    Nissa Premiere was the eldest, and most stubborn of them all. She was the one who drugged the princes.
    Iya Secunda was next. Never to be the first.
    Siva Terce loved music once. After, to hear was to scream.
    Tammuz Forte was chained to a wall below the earth. She grew strong there.
    Ave Quintilla heard her mother's call to the river.
    Elu Sextilla slipped away with her lover.
    Tishrei Kore ran away the day of her sister's wedding.
    Chesheva Edel felt the scales fall from her eyes and saw the truth.
    Kisle Danielle fell into a dream.
    Teve Esther realized that she lived a very odd life.
    Sheva Heure believed in eleventh hour rescues.
    And Adara Nocte, the youngest, that one had far to go.

    Summary

    Dies ist die sehr freie Wiedererzählung und Neuinterpretation des Gilgamesch - Epos aus der Sicht einer leider oft vernachlässigten Nebenfigur. Anfang und Endteil sowie einige Einschübe sind frei nach Mythen und Liedern rund um die Gestalt der Göttin Innana und meiner eigenen Fantasie konzipiert.
    Vom Stil her nicht direkt Prosa, aber auch keine gebundene Sprache.
