For Hecuba!

A world of loss.
Her husband killed,
her sons lost over and over again in battles,
until there were none.
Her daughters raped and/or taken prisoner.
Her grandson, too, the horrors of what has been/must be done with her grandson.
For Hecuba, there is little consolation.
Life? Exile. Servitude. A world of loss behind her.
