The hands that had traced my painted wounds lifted me gently. I was gathered into the arms of Hecuba: the wrinkled mask with its down-turned mouth bent close above. The flute, which had been moaning softly through the speech, getting a clue, wailed louder. Under its sound, Queen Hecuba whispered in my ear, "Be quiet, you little bastard. You're dead." ( )

The Mask of Apollo is Nikerato's good luck oracle and muse,
smiling silently and using his eyes to convey reactions seen as visions.

Niko's early entry into his father's acting profession steers his lifelong career and loves.

It is a pleasure to read until the endless battles at the finale in Syracuse.
(As well, Niko meeting the young lady of The Academy who showed up unharmed in Syracuse was a stretch.)

Ending is silly - why leave a beautiful gold gift on a grave to be stolen...?
What will The Mask think of THAT?

Here's one from Euripides for January 6th, 2021:

In vain man's expectation;
God brings the unthought to be,
As here we see. ( )

I didn't enjoy this one nearly as much as Bull from the Sea. Perhaps because it was more political and philosophical than mythical and dramatic, which is ironic for a tale centered around the theater. There were many characters to keep track of, so that every time I put the book down, I had to re-orient myself when I picked it back up. She is a wonderful writer and I look forward to the next one, but I would place this one at the bottom of the list of Mary Renault novels to explore. ( )

Top notch fun! A real page turner that had me up well past my bed time, that took me back to Plato's world and helped me understand some of those issues. I'm no classical scholar so I can't judge the historical accuracy, but on the other hand I have read a few of Plato's dialogues and this book seemed to catch the right flavor.

Curiously relevant to modern times, too, sad to say. Politics doesn't really change over the millennia, nor human nature.

This was my introduction to Mary Renault. I am just delighted to have this territory open up for me! ( )

Tears were for Hekabe, friend, and for Ilion's women,
Spun into the dark Web on the day of their birth,
But for you our hopes were great, and great the triumph,
Cancelled alike by the gods at the point of glory.
Now you lie in your own land, now all men honor you --
But I loved you, O Dion!
--Plato
(Translated by Dudley Fitts)
