Shakespeare’s time and ours each engage intensely with Troy. What both periods share is a view that the matter of Troy, with its tensions and contradictions, is relevant to their own contemporary world issues. Departing from more usual synchronic or diachronic approaches, this volume seeks to provide insights into how and why Troy matters by analysing a selection of Trojan afterlives across those two periods. Probing different cultural and national contexts, the volume’s contributors compose a picture of multiple Troys – the Troy of destruction alongside the Troy of love, the Troy of heroism alongside that of bondage.

Francesca Rayner is Assistant Professor at the Universidade do Minho and Janice Valls-Russell is a principal research associate of France's National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) at the University Paul Valéry, Montpellier.
