After Troy a Poem by Taban lo Liyong
after troy, Taban lo Liyong’s booklength poem, weaves together classical Greek mythology and modern experience through revisiting of two classical Greek texts, Homer’s Odyssey and Aeschylus’s Oresteia. In a sequence of dramatic monologues, Lo Liyong animates the homecoming from the Trojan war of the two hero-kings, Odysseus and Agamemnon, with dialogues of other characters, most of them women, who are not given a voice in the original stories. after troy is also a provocative enquiry into retribution, justice, and the foundations of Greek philosophical thought.
