Hecuba by Euripides is a poignant and tragic play that delves into the aftermath of war and the suffering of women. The titular character, Hecuba, is a queen who has lost everything - her husband, her children, and her kingdom. As she navigates through her grief and despair, she is faced with the ultimate betrayal and loss of her surviving children.

Euripides masterfully explores themes of vengeance, justice, and the plight of the powerless in this powerful play. The characters are complex and multi-dimensional, with each one grappling with their own moral dilemmas and struggles. The language is poetic and evocative, drawing the reader into the emotional turmoil of the characters.

Overall, Hecuba is a haunting and timeless tragedy that forces us to confront the harsh realities of war and its devastating impact on innocent lives. Euripides' exploration of loss and grief is both heartbreaking and thought-provoking, leaving a lasting impression on the reader long after the final curtain falls.

Book Description:
Like Euripides' Trojan Women, this play takes place after the sack of Troy. Hecuba, widow of King Priam, suffers the loss of her daughter Polyxena and her son Polydore, and is hungry for revenge on those who have wronged her.
