Tiger At The Gates by Jean Giraudoux

"Tiger at the Gates" is a play that presents a pacifist perspective on the Trojan War, focusing on the character of Hector, a Trojan military leader who foresees the destruction that war with Greece will bring. Despite his efforts to avoid conflict through diplomacy and reason, he is met with ridicule and pressure from his fellow Trojans, who are eager for battle and glory. The narrative explores themes of fate, individual versus collective responsibility, and the tragic consequences of war, as Hector's attempts to maintain peace ultimately fail, leading to the inevitable fall of Troy.
