This project is a fictional adaptation of The Iliad, told from the third-person perspective of Andromache, the wife of Trojan commander Hector. Andromache attempts to present a consistent Trojan female voice in its telling, as well as a picture of a committed marriage. It seeks to capture the complicated humanity of individual characters rather than the archetypal objectivity of Homer’s poem. And, most importantly, it tries to provide moments of goodness, fidelity, and hope in the face of immorality, unfaithfulness, and despair.
