  • Overview
    In 'A Phoenix Too Frequent', we have a fresh retelling of the Matron of Ephesus, the story of a pious widow-and her maid-who mourns for the death of her recently deceased husband. The maid is not as pious, yet both women begin to suffer the pangs of a self-imposed hunger. There are signs that they also are unhappy over the loss of male company,and when a handsome guard appears, the widow is ready to forget her pious devotions and shows indications of returning speedily to a worldly and pleasant life which she had too soon decided to give up.
