Description

'Tempest has a gift for shattering and transcending convention.' New York Times Philoctetes lives in a cave on a desolate island: the wartime hero is now a wounded outcast. Stranded for ten years, he sees a chance of escape when a young soldier appears with tales of Philoctetes' past glories. But with hope comes suspicion - and, as an old enemy emerges, he is faced with an even greater temptation: revenge. Kae Tempest is now widely acknowledged as a revolutionary force in contemporary British poetry, music and drama; they continue to expand the range of their work with a new version of Sophocles' Philoctetes in a bold new translation. Like Brand New Ancients before it, Paradise shows Tempest's gift for lending the old tales an immediate contemporary relevance - and will find this timeless story a wide new audience.
