A very nice book. “Aornos is a mind-staged hallucinatory tragedy in the classical vein—a shadowy, spiritual, sorrowful tale. Set in Greece during the Archaic Period, the play is a stark and somnambulistic voyage along the ancient limits between being and not, where former forms wander embodied in their own uncertainty, full of reflections, and the shadows of their own old thirsts. Rarely—if they seek it—the living may go there, sink like lead to where Acheron leads, and plumb the deeps of Love and Death where the distinction of the two may no longer be discerned. It forbids, and so invites; come, sail with us to Aornos!” #51618
