House Of The Muses #1by Pamela Justine Harrison
A tale from ancient history, compiled from the writings of a Greek poet and her friend. But in "The House of the Muses," you'll read it through the modern media we know as the Graphic Novel. And the poet is Sappho, so it's no surprise that passion is as omnipresent as the power politics of slave ownership and family intrigues. House of the Muses: The Latter Days of Sappho of Lesbos introduces us to Mnasidika of Sparta, a girl with a stolen destiny, and how she made her journey to Lesbos. At the end of her adventures, she would write the one poem that the legendary Poetess of Mytilene would safeguard among her treasured works forever.legendary Poetess of Mytilene would safeguard among her treasured works forever.
In this issue: Mnasidika of Sparta, adopted into the house of Athenaios, witnesses the goings on at a Symposium welcoming Peisandros, Athenaios' banished nephew, back into the family as a business partner.
The welcome turns sour when Peisandros hints that his uncle is instead the responsible party for the murder that got him banished from Athens, and only welcomes him home now to ease his guilt.
Athenaios and Isthia's plans for Dika's marriage are threatened when she meets the lovely Timas of Phokaia, an unexpected guest at the Symposium.
