Tiresias

by

Patrick James Sheehan

The closed loop of love and destiny encircles a man and his deceased wife after his wish for her return is granted. Influenced by T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, Tiresias uses the topography of Rome and the structures of rhetoric to further the timeless relationship between its eponymous namesake and the Cumaean Sibyl as reflected in the extraordinary lives of an erudite young couple who share a love for classic literature, art, music, film and the words that bind them.

The historical sense involves a perception, not only of the pastness of the past, but of its presence.
T. S. Eliot (1888-1965)   The Sacred Wood   1921
