Professor George McWhirterUBC Department of Creative Writing
George McWhirter sees Euripides’ play Hecuba as one woman's argument with the army of destiny, its generals, and one of its dastards. Capturing this argument (and another, with her daughter, not to predecease her) and how the fierce melody of Hecuba’s lament propels the acute logic of her case is McWhirter’s subject.
