The Last Days of Troy
Simon Armitage

Paperback $24.99 - Faber
Poetry - Published: 1/May/2016 - ISBN: 9780571315109

The Last Days of Troy tells the tale of the Trojan War in a vivid new dramatic adaptation. Simon Armitage is rightly celebrated as one of the country's most original and engaging poets; but he is also an adaptor and translator of some of our most important epics, such as Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, The Death of King Arthur and Homer's Odyssey. The latter, originally a commission for BBC Radio, rendered the classical tale with all the flare, wit and engagement that we have come to expect from this most distinctive of contemporary authors, and in so doing brought Odysseus's return from the Trojan War memorably to life.
