The Blind Seer is a poem in the form of a Greek tragedy about a blind, masked old man whose visions are at first accepted as prophecies by society but who is rejected when his predictions become too dark.

The character of the Blind Seer relates to the ancient Greek Tiresias and to the blind masked characters in Japanese Noh drama and Shinto ritual.

It is about ideas of sight/insight, vision/visionary, light/ enlightenment, reality and illusion, prophecy and superstition and about the masks we wear to the world and to ourselves.
