Agamemnon | Aeschylus

Tragedy
3/26/2019 to 6/20/2019
I started reading the book but never got a chance to finish it.
Agamemnon starts with a Watchman on obligation on the roof of the palace at Argos, ready for a sign announcing the fall of Troy to the Greek armies. They surmount the regime, and the Chorus broadcasts that Clytemnestra's son Orestes will return from exile to avenge his father.

Catching up on #screamathonphotochallenge pics from the last few days as I enjoy this rainy morning! Taking it easy since my stomach has been out of sorts the past 2 days...most likely from eating too much gluten on Monday.

I have a wealth of #orangeandblack 📚 thanks to Penguin Classics and the 🐧 orange collection! 🧡🖤

Euripides is my favourite of all the Greek playwrights. Medea's howls and cries still resound today. Isn't Jason's "rational" refusal to acknowledge Medea's pain resonant with how men - across history - deal with women's "emotionality"? For those wanting to try Greek classics, Euripides is the "most modern" of them all, hence, the most accessible. This Penguin edition captures the very best of Euripides. Pick it up!

Medea murders her children after Jason betrays her for a younger, more politically useful woman.

The Orestia | Aeschylus

So, for book #4 for #thereadingrush , I decided to multitask by by reading something I needed for my novel, as it‘s also #campnanowrimo. In my book, Orestes decided that rather than being a supporting character, he wanted to be a major character. Upon realizing I had never read “The Orestia” from start to finish (all three plays in order), I decided to do so. Anyone want to join me in punching Apollo and giving Orestes cuddles & cookies?

Jess_Franzino Also, if you think YOUR family is dysfunctional, you should read “The Orestia”. I promise you‘ll feel better by comparison because, hey, at least you‘re not House Atreus. 7mo

Man, life was rough as shit back in ancient times. And then you gotta have a chorus around to poetically narrate everything. I really enjoyed all three plays, Oedipus the King the most, probably. I appreciate that these are shorter plays, although I think Antigone could have been longer and more......in-depth? But I‘m not going to act like I can do drama better than an ancient Greek, LOL. 4/5 ⭐️
