Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

By Greek tragedian, Sophocles. Son of Poias in Greek mythology, Philoctetes by gift acquired the bow and arrow of Hercules, by lighting the pyre on which the hero was consumed alive. On his way to the Trojan War, Philoctetes was bitten by a snake; and because the odor from his wound and his cries made his presence offensive, his companions left him on the desolate island of Lemnos.
