Women of Troy

By Euripides Translated by Kenneth McLeish

Paperback £3.99£3.19

Drama Classics: The World's Great Plays at a Great Little Price

In the aftermath of the bloody Trojan Wars, the women of the city lament their fate and look fearfully ahead to the future.

Covering themes of religious scepticism, the injustices within roles for women and the destructive power of war, Euripides' tragedy Women of Troy is as relevant now as it ever was.

This English translation by Kenneth McLeish is published in the Nick Hern Books Drama Classics series, with an introduction by Marianne McDonald and Michael Walton.
