Played out against the ruined walls of Troy, The Trojan Women —
one of the most powerful indictments of war ever written — grimly recounts the murder of the innocent, the desecration of shrines, and the enslavement of Trojan women. Hippolytus,
the second drama, depicts the struggles to master human passion, struggles symbolized by gods who behave like irresponsible humans. These two classics of human self-examination are essential reading for anyone interested in world drama.
