Item #14761 THE FIREBRAND. A Novel. Marion Zimmer Bradley.


New York: Simon and Schuster, (1987). First edition. Hardcover. Here, the author has re-imagined the story of the Trojan War, and retells it from the point of view of Kassandra the beautiful and tormented royal princess of Troy. The story unfolds in a new and daring way, from the judgment of Paris, the abduction of Helen (here, not the wicked adultress of legend, but a warm and loving woman, devoted to Paris and their children) and the summoning of the Greek armies by Agamemnon, Helen's enraged brother-in-law, to the final tragedy of the city's destruction, fated by the gods, and by the willful pride of its male leaders. A very good plus copy in an unclipped clean dust jacket. Item #14761
