The Song of Troy

(1998)
A novel by

 
The Song of Troy
As urgent and passionate as if told for the first time, the narrative is passed from one character to another: Priam, King of Troy, doomed to make the wrong decisions for the right reasons; the Greek princess Helen, a self-indulgent beauty who deserts her boring husband for the sake of an equally self-indulgent beauty, the Trojan prince Paris; the haunted fighting machine, Achilles; the heroically noble hektor; the subtle and brilliant Odysseus; Agmemnon, King of Kings, who consents to the unspeakable in order to launch his thousand ships, and thus incurs the enmity of his terrifying wife, Klytemnestra. But where does human folly end? And where does the pitiless retribution of the Gods begin? The characters dazzle, swinging our sympathies from Greece to Troy and back again as each of them moves inexorably towards a fate even the Gods cannot avert.

Colleen McCullough's compelling, fascinating, novel shows readers of every generation the unforgettable power of a story that lies deep at the heart of Western culture, and still resonates today.
