H. Allenger

Al Cole of CBS Radio interviews author H. Allenger about his book Polyxena. The author talks about various aspects of the story and how he came up with an alternative look at the cause of the fall of Troy and its citizens. The book is filled with political intrigue, violence, and romance.

Polyxena tells the story of its eponymous heroine who faces death after having rejected the advances of her captor since the fall of Troy. The daughter of King Priam, Polyxena relates her thoughts to Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess she holds responsible for having orchestrated her fate, to find solace and overcome her fear of death.

She recounts how she was sent to the Amazons to call for aid in their war against the Greeks. She then becomes a captive of Achilles when he defeats the Trojan warriors and the two found romance with each other. After returning to Troy, she tries to keep their forbidden love a secret but, through treachery, her brothers learn of it, leading to a tragic outcome for them both. As she tries to make sense of it all, Polyxena’s introspection leads her to surprising conclusion about the life she has lived.
