ADRASTEA, goddess of righteous anger, is the daughter of Zeus and Ananke. She distributes rewards and justice, and punishes any human transgressions of the natural order of the world. Both the Romans and Greeks identify her with Nemesis, goddess of vengeance.
ODE TO ADRASTEA: She Whom None Can Escape is a collaboration between Joan Anderson and Jennifer Lord. We contemplated Adrastea to create an ecological hymn, which took the form of an artists book. As human transgressions against the natural order of the world abound, from the present ecological crisis to the disparity of wealth, we invoke Adrastea’s justice.
