AUTHOR

Heaney, Seamus

SUMMARY

The Cure at Troyis Seamus Heaney's version of Sophocles'Philoctetes. Written in the fifth century BC, this play concerns the predicament of the outcast hero, Philoctetes, whom the Greeks marooned on the island of Lemnos and forgot about until the closing stages of the Siege of Troy. Abandoned because of a wounded foot, Philoctetes nevertheless possesses an invincible bow without which the Greeks cannot win the Trojan War. They are forced to return to Lemnos and seek out Philoctetes' support in a drama that explores the conflict between personal integrity and political expediency. Heaney's version ofPhiloctetesis a fast-paced, brilliant work ideally suited to the stage. Heaney holds on to the majesty of the Greek original, but manages to give his verse the flavor of Irish speech and context.Heaney, Seamus is the author of 'Cure at Troy A Version of Sophocles' Philoctetes', published 1991 under ISBN 9780374522896 and ISBN 0374522898.
