The Silence of the Girls

As told in the "Iliad", the Trojan War was a quarrel between men. But what of the women in this story, silenced by their fates?
When her city falls to the Greek, Briseis's old life is shattered. She goes from queen to captive, from free woman to slave, awarded to the godlike warrior Achilles as a prize of battle.
In this magnificent novel of the Trojan War, Pat Barker summons the voices of Briseis and her fellow women to tell this mythic story anew, foregrounding their experiences against the backdrop of battle between men.
