The Silence of the Girls
Nov 08, 2019
Fans of Song of Achilles will find this to be a captivating companion. The narrative here flits between the first person perspective of Briseis, Trojan queen turned slave of Achilles, and the third person. The story here is quite narrow as we follow Briseis's capture and her adapting to life in the Greek camp as the war waged on. Achilles here is gruffer, crueler, and altogether more believable as a relentless warrior, but the women truly shine as they choose to live and survive or die to spare themselves the torment of being property.
