Voices of the Trojan War
by Kate Hovey and Leonid Gore




Overview -
Tell us again of the wooden horse;
give us an ageless rhyme
of heroes and battles, of meddling gods,
and a city lost to time.

This invocation to the Muse begins Kate Hovey's exquisite rendition of the events leading up to and during the Trojan War -- the legendary ten-year battle between the House of Priam in Troy and the great heroes of Greece and its allies, in consequence of Paris, the prince of Troy, having carried off Helen, wife of the King of Sparta.
Through passionate verse and evocative images, we are transported to the battlefield to witness the war as it unfolds -- from the moment Paris is manipulated by the gods to fall in love with Helen to the final maneuver by the Greeks, who enter and vanquish the city of Troy by secreting themselves in a gigantic wooden horse.
In listening to the voices and stories of those ancient Greeks and Trojans who struggled, fought, lost, and won, readers everywhere will be deeply moved and will come to a profound appreciation of the delicate nature of humanity and the futility of war
