The War at Troy

by Lindsay Clarke

Part of the The Troy Quartet Series

The War at Troy Synopsis

PART TWO OF THE TROY QUARTET Bringing ancient myth to life with passion, humour, and humanity, Lindsay Clarke vividly retells the story of Troy and of the heroes who fought there. Enraged by the betrayal of Helen and Paris, Menelaus and his brother, the High King Agamemnon, gather their allies and set out to conquer the city of Troy. Aboard their ships and behind the city's walls are figures whose names and deeds echo through history - the wily strategist Odysseus, the Trojan champion Hector, and the fiercely proud, impetuous warrior Achilles. 'An engaging retelling of the whole story, neatly blending mythic archaism with modern psychodrama and satire' Mary Beard 1 - A PRINCE OF TROY 2 - THE WAR AT TROY 3 - THE SPOILS OF TROY 4 - THE RETURN FROM TROY
