Listing Works

    Summary

    Vignettes from the point of view of Helen, from her childhood to the Trojan War.

     

    This is just my personal take, and one interpretation out of an infinite many. I have just been thinking about the most beautiful woman in the world who she might be, as a demigod, as a wife, and as a person.

    Work in progress, but just wanted a place to get it out and force me to give each episode a try.

    Summary

    But wasn’t she a priestess? they had all asked. Didn’t she know? Hadn’t she read? Of all people, surely, she should have understood what Delphi told them all.

    Cassandra knew herself. She had not acted in excess. There was a difference in desperation. In hope, in wanting, in calculations being spun into flimsy thread. She hadn’t known her flax was rotting. She hadn’t known her careful spinning and bloody fingers would all be for nothing.

    Summary

    Before Talthybius arrives to tell Andromache the unthinkable, she recounts all she's been through. Written as a poem and as a character study in college when I played Andromache in acting class. 10 years later, I actually played her in a full production and looking back on this helped me slide right back into her skin.
