    Clytemnestra was responsible for her husbands death. However, as we now know, Agamemnon’s death was just a symptom of a family curse. Does the fact that Agamemnon’s death is the result of a curse make Clytemnestra any less responsible for the murder of her husband?

    I believe that Agamemnon’s death was equally

    • a symptom of the family curse
    • a consequence of the king’s actions (prior & after the War)
    • Clytaemnestra’s decision (with Aegisthus’ kind encouragement & assistance)

    Certain scholars also mention political transitions (e.g., from the custom of blood feud to public courts of law, and/or from a matrilineal to a patrilineal society) as central themes in the Aeschylus’ play.

    Despite of the fact that he was a kind of tyrant, he was very strong from different aspects.



    I envy you guys, you know so much. And I have to work a lot because I have to raise kids. And that has always been this way. I had to help mom when I was at school. So thankfully now you can read about phd writing services to see what you need to do to write a good paper. Because I didn’t have that and now I don’t even know who you are talking about.
