Seamus Heaney's version of Philoctetes, by Sophocles, the play written in the 5th Century B.C., set before us the predicament of the outcast hero, philoctetes, whom the Greeks marooned on the island Lemnos and forgot about until the closing stages of the Siege of Troy. The Greeks were forced to return to Lemnos and sue for Philoctetses' support to win the Trojan War.
