Anne Carson: "The Trojan Women"



Here is a selection of pages from the new collaboration between the visual artist Rosanna Bruno and the poet and classicist Anne Carson. In a new comic-book version of Euripides' classic The Trojan Women (published by Bloodaxe Books), both contributors attempt to give a genuine representation of how human beings are affected by warfare, following the fates of Hekabe, Andromache and Kassandra after Troy has been sacked and all its men killed. All of the characters (of course) have been given the form of animals. (You can find Jo Balmer's review in this quarter's issue.)
