9780330418911: Helen of Troy: A Novel
Présentation de l'éditeur :

The New York Times bestseller from Margaret George, author of Mary, Called Magdalene and Elizabeth I

With her amazing ability to summon the voices of historical characters, Margaret George tells the story of the woman whose face "launched a thousand ships" in Helen of Troy. Laden with doom, yet surprising in its moments of innocence and beauty, this is a beautifully told story of a legendary woman and her times. An exquisite page-turner with a cast of irresistible characters--Odysseus, Hector, Achilles, Priam, Clytemnestra, Agamemnon, as well as Helen and Paris themselves--and a wealth of material that reproduces the Age of Bronze in all its glory, Helen of Troy brings to life a war that we have all learned about but never before experienced.

Revue de presse :

Delicious. ( People)

An impressive feat of research and imagination. ItÆs no mean trick to resurrect not only ancient Attic politics and lifestyles, but the atmosphere of a time in which the gods truly spoke. (Diana Gabaldon, author of Outlander)

A feast . . . George leaves us with the most coveted prize of fiction: a world . . . we wished existed, and that thoroughly does between the covers. ( Chicago Tribune)

Fresh and vivid. ( The Washington Post)

What Ms. George has created with this book is a great summer read: realistic characters, engaging plots and enough mythology and Homer to make it all interesting. ( The Dallas Morning News)

Description du livre Pan MacMillan, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. État : New. Unabridged. 193 x 129 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Bestselling novelist, Margaret George, here imagines the story of Helen of Sparta and Troy, one of the most amazing female mythical characters, ancient or modern. A war, which lasted for 10 years, was fought over her and nearly all the stories of the heroic age were bound into her story -- a measure of her capacity to galvanise men into action. Using her unique gift for research and recreation, Margaret George brings to life a Helen who was a tantalizing enigma from the very first, flesh and blood certainly, but also immortal, as the daughter of Zeus. Her beauty is so overwhelming and dangerous that, as a child, she is protected from seeing her reflection. Kings and princes compete for her hand in marriage, and she marries Menelaus of Sparta, but before marrying him all her other suitors swear to help bring Helen back should she ever be abducted again. When she falls for Paris of Troy it is assumed that he has taken her by force, when her actions are far more complex. The suitors are obliged to honour their oath and so the Trojan War begins -- the most pivotal event in the history of ancient Greece .and the tragedy of these individuals. An epic novel.Margaret George recreates.passions. .with extraordinary intensity. If only history lessons had been like this Cosmopolitan. N° de réf. du libraire AA79780330418911
