Description - Andromache by Euripides
In "Andromache", Euripides depicts the aftermath of the Trojan war, when Andromache, the widow of Hector, has become the concubine to Achilles' son Neoptolemus and has borne a child, Molossus, to him. As the play opens, Andromache and Molossus are threatened with death by Neoptolemus' young wife, Hermione, who has been unable to conceive a child. The struggle between the two women is mirrored in the conflict between Peleus, who defends Andromache, and Menelaus, who arrives to help Hermione complete her bid for power.
