內容簡介

《布魯克林》作者,愛爾蘭小說家柯姆.托賓改寫希臘悲劇作家艾斯奇勒斯的《奧瑞斯提亞》三部曲。

「托賓之所以成功的部分原因在於他掌握了寫作的力道:幾乎毫無誤差地結合了藝術的節制與驚人的觀察細節…令人難忘。」-《紐約時報》

「說書者當中的巨人,托賓以最新小說提出了挑戰…這是一本傑作。」-《每日電訊報》

依菲吉尼亞被拖上祭台之前,他們便剪去了她的秀髮,嘴裡被塞進了厚布,以便制止她發出對父親阿加曼儂的詛咒。膽小的兩面人阿加曼儂以婚禮誘惑女兒,親自下達了祭獻女兒的命令,如此才能平息女神之怒,順利出航進攻特洛伊,拿下光榮的勝利。

三年之後,阿加曼儂的返家,開啟了家族的殺戮行動。妻子克呂泰涅斯特拉與情夫密謀,殺死了阿加曼儂。兒子奧瑞斯提斯與女兒依勒克忒拉為了給父親復仇,聯手殺死了母親。這個以欲望與背叛交織的故事,在當今最好的小說家之一的筆下,有了最美麗且大膽的描述。

They cut her hair before they dragged her to the place of sacrifice. Her mouth was gagged to stop her cursing her father, her cowardly, two-tongued father. Nonetheless, they heard her muffled screams.' On the day of his daughter's wedding, Agamemnon orders her sacrifice. His daughter is led to her death, and Agamemnon leads his army into battle, where he is rewarded with glorious victory. Three years later, he returns home and his murderous action has set the entire family - mother, brother, sister - on a path of intimate violence, as they enter a world of hushed commands and soundless journeys through the palace's dungeons and bedchambers. As his wife seeks his death, his daughter, Electra, is the silent observer to the family's game of innocence while his son, Orestes, is sent into bewildering, frightening exile where survival is far from certain. Out of their desolating loss, Electra and Orestes must find a way to right these wrongs of the past even if it means committing themselves to a terrible, barbarous act. House of Names is a story of intense longing and shocking betrayal. It is a work of great beauty, and daring, from one of our finest living writers.
