Description


Una novela magistral sobre la guerra de Troya desde una perspectiva femenina.
 
«Ésta nunca ha sido la historia de una mujer, ni de dos: es la de todas.» En plena noche, una mujer se despierta y observa que su amada ciudad está envuelta en llamas. Los diez años de conflicto entre griegos y troyanos, que parecían no tener fin, quedan atrás, con Troya reducida a cenizas. Desde las mujeres troyanas, cuyos destinos ahora están en manos de los griegos, hasta la princesa amazona que, en nombre de ellas, luchó contra Aquiles, pasando por Penélope, que espera el regreso de Ulises, o las tres diosas con cuya contienda empezó todo... Éstas son las fabulosas historias de unas mujeres envueltas en una guerra legendaria y marcadas por sus terribles secuelas.
 
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A national bestseller and an NPR Best Book of the Year

Shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction, a gorgeous retelling of the Trojan War from the perspectives of the many women involved in its causes and consequences —for fans of Madeline Miller.
 
This is the women’s war, just as much as it is the men’s. They have waited long enough for their turn...
 
This was never the story of one woman, or two. It was the story of them all...
 
In the middle of the night, a woman wakes to find her beloved city engulfed in flames. Ten seemingly endless years of conflict between the Greeks and the Trojans are over. Troy has fallen.
 
From the Trojan women whose fates now lie in the hands of the Greeks, to the Amazon princess who fought Achilles on their behalf, to Penelope awaiting the return of Odysseus, to the three goddesses whose feud started it all, these are the stories of the women whose lives, loves, and rivalries were forever altered by this long and tragic war.
 
A woman’s epic, powerfully imbued with new life, A Thousand Ships puts the women, girls, and goddesses at the center of the Western world’s great tale ever told.
 
“Gorgeous.... With her trademark passion, wit, and fierce feminism, Natalie Haynes gives much-needed voice to the silenced women of the Trojan War.” —Madeline Miller, author of Circe
