Essays on Trojan Women, 2001


Set in the aftermath of international conflict, Euripides' Trojan Women is one of the most powerful and controversial of classical Greek tragedies.

Edited by David Stuttard and Tamsin Shasha, this 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.

The book 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.
