Sophocles presents a moving story of suffering, abandonment, and betrayal. Philoctetes, a master archer, has been left for years to suffer on the deserted island Lemnos by Ulysses (Odysseus) because of a putrid snakebite wound. The Greeks return for him when it becomes apparent that victory over the Trojans depends on his participation.
