One of a series of French texts which are works of the past and not readily accessible to scholars. Each has historic or literary value and is accompanied by an introduction in French. This volume presents "La Troade" by Sallebray. This is the first edition since 1641 of a play whose importance lies partly in its links with Racines's "Andromaque", but more particularly in its dramaturgical, psychological and thematic originality in adapting its traditional classical material for the 17th century stage.
