Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 193638163X, Paperback)

From the award-winning author and poet Edward Eaton comes a new work of verse and drama. HECTOR AND ACHILLES is the action-packed story of the events surrounding the epic duel. Hector stoically leaves the safety of his city to face the Greek hero and certain death. As he and Achilles fight, they are watched by Hector's ever-loyal wife, Andromache; the lustful Greek army; bored Trojan women, resigned to their fates, the sacking of their city, and somewhat bored by the whole affair; old Priam, who prepares himself to brave the enemy camp and confront his son's killer; misshapen Thersites, the first victim to Achilles' wrath; and others. This dramatic retelling, based in part on Homer's Iliad, is filled with action, passion, soaring verse, and even rollicking humor. [A Verse Drama in 9 scenes]
The book is not yet in a Kindle version, but can be found in PDF format at the publisher's website. dragonflypubs.com/dfp/hectorandachilles.html.
