HAIL THE QUEEN saga – introduction

The origins of Western patriarchal history are based on a few epic poems written hundreds of years after the events—mainly The Iliad and The Odyssey—by two men on the winning side of a 10-year war, Homer and Hesiod.

Their myths forged the very bones of Western Civilisation—and culturally programmed us to think of women as the backdrop to men’s history.

This saga brings the most maligned woman in antiquity—HELEN OF TROY, QUEEN OF SPARTA—into the present day.

She’s back.

SAPPHO – HYMN TO APHRODITE – TRANSLATED BY ANNE CARSON
Deathless Aphrodite of the spangled mind,
child of Zeus, who twists lures, I beg you
do not break with hard pains,
O lady, my heart.

But you, oh blessed one,
smiled in your deathless face
and asked what (now again) I have suffered and why
(now again) I am calling out

and what I want to happen most of all
in my crazy heart.
