In Greek mythology, Eurydice (Greek: Εὐρυδίκη, Eurydikē “wide justice”, derived from ευρυς eurys “wide” and δικη dike “justice”) was the wife of Orpheus, who tried to bring her back from the dead with his enchanting music. The story of Eurydice may be a late addition to the Orpheus myths. In particular, the name Eurudike (“she whose justice extends widely”) recalls cult-titles attached to Persephone. The myth may have been derived from another Orpheus legend in which he travels to Tartarus and charms the goddess Hecate.
When I experienced anagnorisis like a kick in the dick.
They’re so wrong. It’s actually got to be one of the oldest strata of Orpheus’ myth.
You see Eurydike is a Sovereignty Goddess, and without her King Orpheus cannot rule.
Fuck, that … has repercussions.
How have I never seen this before?
