The Women of Troy

The Women of Troy

"As a woman, as a writer, you can pick those underwritten stories from history, and give them new life."

Jane Roberts always loved the classics, but the more she learned the less she saw the lives of women in the epics. So she set about writing their stories herself. In this beautiful poem, Jane breathes life into the silent washer women of Troy.
