    Summary

    Prometheus came to both Zeus and Poseidon and warned them that the child Thetis would bear would be greater than the father, though he did not explain just how much greater this child would be. Zeus decided to be as cautious as possible and not wed Thetis to any god for this was not a chance he would take. He married her off to a mortal, Peleus and together conceived Achilles whom was promised immortality and godhood but that was not enough for Achilles, he had to have Patroclus as well and he'd challenge the gods to get what he desired.

    Summary

    '“Diomedian compulsion”: a proverbial expression […] Others say that Diomedes and Odysseus were on their way back from Troy at night after stealing the Palladium, and Odysseus, who was behind Diomedes, intended to kill him; but in the moonlight Diomedes saw the shadow of his sword, turned round, overpowered Odysseus, tied him up, and forced him to go ahead by beating his back with his sword. The expression is applied to people who do something under compulsion.' (Pausanias)

    Or: that time Odysseus literally tried to stab his bff in the back

    Summary

    I have no life but this,
    To lead it here;
    Nor any death, but lest
    Dispelled from there;

    Nor tie to earths to come,
    Nor action new,
    Except through this extent,
    The realm of you.

    - Emily Dickinson

    Summary

    A dramatic monologue of sorts (in Scottish Gaelic) that addresses Deirdre directly and tells her tragic story.

    The daughter of the court storyteller of King Conchobhar of Ulster, Deirdre was only a newborn when the druid Cathbad foretold her destiny; she would grow up to be the fairest in all Ireland, but kings and lords would go to war over her, much blood would be spilled over her, and Ulster's three finest warriors would be forced into exile and die for her sake.
    The Red Branch Warriors, Conchobhar's armed forces, demanded that the baby be killed to avert this dreadful prophesy. But Conchobhar, wanting to be humane and intrigued by the descriptions of Deirdre's future beauty, ordered that the girl would be raised in isolation, only around other women, and when she reached marriageable age he would marry her.
    Things did not go according to his plans. Deirdre, a beautiful but lonely young woman, fell in love with Conchobhar's nephew, Naoise, a handsome young man who was already Ulster's finest warrior and hunter, and an accomplished singer.

    English translation follows the original Gaelic.
