Euripides, Women of Troy
Feminists eat your heart out. This is described as the first anti-war poem. Euripides describes the plights of those affected by the battle of Troy, the war that takes place in the Iliad.
Specifically, the woman who suffered needlessly as a result of men’s rage. I picked this book up in a charity shop down the street from my house and read it in about 15 minutes.
⚖️ Expectations vs Reality
As I said above, I read this in 15 minutes, and I didn’t find it to be a particularly interesting or enjoyable experience, if I’m being completely honest.
🍻 Would I get a beer with the author?
I was going to write no, but then remembered he wrote the Bacchae…. it’s tough, but I am leaning towards no.
