Hecuba, widow of King Priam, is an icon of sorrow and loss. She becomes the property of Odysseus after the fall of Troy, but her daughter Polyxena chooses death over slavery and is killed. Hecuba has only one surviving son, Polydorus. He is murdered by Polymestor, the man entrusted with his safety. Hecuba’s pleas to avenge her son’s death are denied, and so she finds her own means of retribution.
