Ajax in Iraq

Poet-playwright Ellen McLaughlin balances ancient Greek drama and testimonial realism about the U.S. occupation of Iraq, cracking open Sophocles' Ajax, a portrait of berserk battle rage, by plundering it for its protodiagnosis of PTSD. The author doesn’t always exert perfect control, but there is genuine fear, anger and ecstasy in these characters.—Helen Shaw
