Essays on Trojan Women
Set in the aftermath of international conflict, Euripides' Trojan Women is one of the most powerful and controversial of classical Greek Tragedies.
This wide-ranging collection of nine essays by some of Britain's foremost academics examines different aspects of the play, its historical, socio-political and dramatic context and the issues which it raises.
It is not only an ideal introduction to Trojan Women but an excellent overview of reactions to the play at the beginning of the 21st century.
