'With her trademark ardour, wit, and fierce feminism, Natalie Haynes provides much-needed voice to the silenced girls of the Trojan War' – Madeline Miller, creator of Circe
In A Thousand Ships, broadcaster and classicist Natalie Haynes retells the story of the Trojan War from an all-female perspective, for followers of Madeline Miller and Pat Barker.
This was by no means the story of 1 girl, or two. It was the story of all of them. . .
In the center of the night time, Creusa wakes to search out her beloved Troy engulfed in flames. Ten seemingly countless years of brutal battle between the Greeks and the Trojans are over, and the Greeks are victorious. Over the subsequent few hours, the solely life she has ever identified will flip to ash . . .
The devastating penalties of the fall of Troy stretch from Mount Olympus to Mount Ida, from the citadel of Troy to the distant Greek islands, and throughout oceans and sky in between. These are the tales of the girls embroiled in that legendary conflict and its horrible aftermath, in addition to the feud and the deadly selections that began all of it. . .
Powerfully informed from an all-female perspective, A Thousand Ships provides voices to the girls, ladies and goddesses who, for so lengthy, have been silent.
