Product Details
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.
