Better to be Pyramus and Thisbe than god Apollo and Daphne? As love oft triumphed by envy. Oh to be Abelard and Heloise or Juliet you and Romeo me! Cleopatra, Marc Antony, Orpheus, and Eurydice! Martyrs to Cupid, were you wary of the price to pay? Did you find peace from Plato’s coined mental disease in Pluto’s long halls of Hades or the self induced daily shade of trees? What of love dooming kin to Achilles? When Dido and Aeneas meet is her suicide guaranteed? Pray tell us, can true love ever be free!
