The following few strips are only vaguely drawn from the source material. Honestly, they stem more from the source material's footnotes in the Norton. The first stanza of the first chorus in this work (When The Hounds of Spring...) references the amorous nightingale, which leads us to the Greek myth of Procne, who killed her own son and fed it to her husband, the king. Because that's the kind of thing that happened in ancient Greece.
