Bad, bad…Helen of Troy

“And were you pleased?” they asked of Helen in Hell.
“Pleased?” answered she, “when all Troy’s towers fell,
And dead were Priam’s sons, and lost his throne,
And such a war was fought as none had known,
And even the gods took part, and all because of me alone?
Pleased?

I should say I was!”

Lord Dunsany 1878-1957

Editor’s Note – If you look for someone to prick the imagination there is no one so qualified as Edward John Moreton Drax Plunkett.   He was an Anglo-Irish Writer, known for his novel The King of Elfland’s Daughter.  It is said they he may have laid the grounds for the fantasy genre.  If  your wondering what plain this guy was operating on.  He created his own form of the chess game called ASYMMERICAL CHESS.
