The Silence of the Girls

“Imagine the Trojan War through the eyes of a woman. Would Achilles still be mighty or King Agamemnon so commanding? In "The Silence of the Girls," Pat Barker dares to conquer the re-telling of this tragic tale through Briseis, once Queen of Lyrnessus. Devastated by the destruction of her family at the hands of Achilles, Briseis is claimed as a prize for his pleasure and forced to servitude in the Greek camp. When the camp is cursed and pestilence soon follows, Briseis quickly becomes a pawn between Achilles and King Agamemnon with deadly consequences. Mythology lovers, take note. Barker’s twist on “The Iliad” is outstanding. In fact, it’s epic. I loved every page!”
