Hecuba by Euripides

The tragedy centers on the sorrow and vengeance of a queen who has lost her city, her husband, and her children to war. After the fall of Troy, she becomes a slave to the Greeks and faces the ultimate horror of witnessing the sacrifice of her daughter and the brutal murder of her last surviving son. Her grief transforms into a dark quest for retribution, leading her to take justice into her own hands, which raises profound questions about morality and the limits of human suffering.
