The chorus of Trojan Women is different from their counterparts in Antigone or Oedipus. They are women who have suffered the same tragic losses as Hecuba, Cassandra, and Andromache. Social status is less relevant in a refugee camp—all of the women are united in their experience of the Trojan War. The role of the chorus is in this play is to engage in the ancient ritual of communal storytelling so we never forget the horrors of war. They take us back in time to the moment the Trojan Horse arrived on the shores and the moment when the Trojans knew the gods had abandoned them. It's not unlike when we gather with friends to retell stories from important moments in our lives- whether they are happy or sad- retelling keeps us from forgetting and helps us process.
Author David Maraniss kicks off the 2015 Writers' Workshop Series at the Williston Northampton School with a public lecture at 7 p.m. on September 24 in the Dodge Room, Reed Campus Center.
Mr. Maraniss is a three-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and award-winning political journalist. His six critically acclaimed biographies include Barack Obama: The Story, When Pride Still Mattered: A Life of Vince Lombardi, and First in His Class: A Biography of Bill Clinton, among other notable works. He is also the author of Into the Story: A Writer's Journey Through Life, Politics, Sports and Loss and The Clinton Enigma.
His most recent work, Once in A Great City: A Detroit Story, recalls his hometown during the early 1960s, at a pinnacle of influence for American auto makers. In his New York Times review, Michiko Kakutani described the book as "a mosaic-like picture of the city that has the sort of intimacy and tactile emotion that Larry McMurtry brought to his depictions of the Old West."
The Writers' Workshop Series was created by celebrated authors and Williston parents Madeleine Blais P'00, '04 and Elinor Lipman P'00 in 1998. During the series, which takes place each fall, four well-established writers visit campus to give public lectures and offer hands-on instruction with students.
