In this issue: Unbeknownst to all her family, Sappho is already deeply embroiled with Alkaios and his friends in a political plot that will soon lead to her arrest and exile from Mytilene.
In present time an unexpected guest makes a visit to the House of the Muses. Gorgo of the House of Penthilos tells Sappho that she has opened a school for girls of her own in the city of Mytilene, with Andromeda, the daughter of Pittakos, as headmistress. Sappho tries not to appear upset by the news and it seems to anger Gorgo. The woman tells Sappho to remember that her reputation is fragile, and how interesting would it be if the people of Mytilene were reminded of her part in the assassination of the tyrant Myrsilos so many years ago.
Sappho orders Gorgo to leave, but the damage has already been done.
The highly-acclaimed, award-winning House of the Muses miniseries is on sale now at Wowio!
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.
