Theanopha was a poet and playwright who lived in the Zarosian Empire during the Second Age. Their sonnets are said to urge us to look inside ourselves and understand the secret shames we all keep hidden.
In a critic's review, the works of Theanopha were used as an example of plays that play on the emotional states of the viewer and prey on the citizens' own preconceptions, as opposed to the play that was being reviewed, the Whispering King by Sliske.
- ^ a b A critic's review (article 4), written by Critic, RuneScape. "But the strangest of all is the writing. I am used to plays that offer hidden meanings, or play on the emotional states of the viewer. [...] The wonderful sonnets of Theanopha who urges us to look inside ourselves and understand the secret shames we all keep hidden. These plays prey on our own preconceptions and turn our own thoughts into a marvellous piece of the performance. But this play does none of that."
