Themeless 35

◆◆ · By JeffsPuzzles · Published 4 months ago

Constructor's Note: This one's hard but hopefully not frustratingly so ... 2 grid-spanners from well-known, devastatingly powerful poems, lots of Greek mythology, a great neologism from crossword fave Brian Eno (12A), and a clue I won't apologize for, no matter how much I should (26A)
