Overview

“Every time I sing this song, I hope it’s the last time.” So says the Poet in this modern retelling of an ancient classic. The Trojan War is over, and the Poet saw it all—unquenchable rage and endless battles. The telling sometimes overwhelms him, but he must sing. He must tell his sad tale of humanity’s unshakeable and perpetual attraction to violence, destruction, and chaos.
