A skillful translation of the classical French tragedy about the captivity of Hector's wife after her abduction by the son of Achilles. The rhymed couplets retain the simplicity of form and powerful language of the original. "[This translation] is a striking tour de force" (Hudson Review). Drawings by Igor Tulipanov.
