The Trojan Women

by Euripides

Trojan Women.jpg

Euripides remains one of the most popular Greek tragedians of the classical era.  If anything, his popularity has only grown in modern times.  His rebellious nature and proclivity for challenging authority make him very appealing to a modern audience.  He is also considered an early feminist due to his focus on female protagonists and the plights of the women of legend.  "The Trojan Women" is one of these plays.  In it, Euripides focuses in on a specific instance in the Trojan Cycle where the women of Troy are confronted by their Achaean captors.
