Pat Barker

A Witness in Troy

Famous for novels set in the 20th century, Pat Barker now turns her penetrating gaze to the ancient world, retelling the story of the Trojan War. The Silence of the Girls is a new perspective on The Iliad; a story usually focused on the role and actions of men. Barker gives voice to Briseis, a princess until Achilles murders her husband Mynes. Now enslaved, Briseis bears witness to the fall of Troy. Chaired by Lee Randall.
