Chris, John and Derek are all here to chat about the bonus episodes of The Sandman, Chapter 11 "Dream of A Thousand Cats and Calliope" in our final Sandman Podcast. The Sandman Chapter 11 "Dream of A Thousand Cats and Calliope" Details Directed by Hisko Hulsing (segment "Dream of a Thousand Cats") Louise Hooper (segment "Calliope") Teleplay for both episodes written by Catherine Smyth-McMullen Staff Writers Catherine Smyth-McMullen and Vanessa Benton Dream of a Thousand Cats Synopsis. At night, a Siamese cat holds a gathering of other cats at the local graveyard to tell her hope for cats, her experiences and the story about her encounter with Morpheus in the Dreaming. A long time ago, she met a tomcat with whom she gave birth to a litter of mixed-breed kittens. This displeased her owners, who took the kittens and threw them into a river, traumatising the Siamese cat. In desperation, the cat dreamed to get answers for this cruel act and revelation of what to do as she meets Morpheus, in the form of a black cat, and begging him for a solution. Morpheus presented her with a parallel universe in which cats were the dominant species over humans until the humans fought back by dreaming, re-creating reality and turning their masters into the cats that mankind sees them as today. Upon finishing her story, the Siamese cat urges the other cats to perform the same enlightenment so that they may reclaim their status as the rulers of the earth. Calliope Synopsis. Struggling author Richard Madoc visits Erasmus Fry, an elderly former writer who has imprisoned a Greek muse named Calliope in his house. Fry transfers ownership of Calliope to Madoc, in exchange for a trichino bezoar. Back at Madoc’s home he discovers that violence is more efficient to receive the Muse’s inspiration. Despite his promises to release her after the publication of his sequel to his best-selling debut novel, he abuses her more than once, until it becomes obvious he never intends to let her go. Calliope sends a desperate plea to the Fates who are unable to act before turning to Morpheus, her former husband, whom she has not seen since the tragic death of their son Orpheus. Upon receiving her plea and learning what has happened to her, Morpheus becomes enraged and confronts Madoc. When he refuses to release Calliope, Morpheus punishes Madoc with an uncontrollable stream of ideas. Madoc soon frees Calliope, who asks Morpheus to lift his curse from Madoc. Morpheus does so, but Madoc finds himself unable to remember Calliope, Morpheus, or any of his ideas. Calliope vows to make sure that what happened to her doesn't happen to her sister Muses. She and Morpheus share a tender goodbye as she expresses the hope that sometime in the future, she can visit him in his realm and they'll be able to grieve their son properly.
