“And, whereas Zeus and Poseidon always thought of women in the plural, Hades would be satisfied with a single abduction. For him, he added with that irony no one wold ever equal, a single woman was quite enough. He paused. Then he explained: the girl he wanted must be the Girl: Kore. He wanted her to sit on the throne of the dead, forever.”

-Roberto Calasso, The Marriage of Cadmus and Harmony, p. 198
