[Extract] The story of Orpheus and Eurydice is a central one in Western mythology. In Orpheus Lost, Janette Turner Hospital reworks aspects of the myth in her study of the psychopathology of the 'War on Terror' which resulted in the 'disappearance' and illegal incarceration of many suspects in Abu Gahrib and Guantanamo Bay.
