Agamemnon At Troy By Chamberlain Peirce
Paperback: $11.92
Prints in 3-5 business days
Literature & Fiction Description: To the ancient Greeks Agamemnon was a compelling historical figure: the leader of the Greek army that won the Trojan war, the brother of the wronged Menelaus,... More > the comrade in arms of perhaps the two greatest figures in the quasi mythical realm of Greek history, Odysseus and Achilles, and, above all, the man who had sacrificed his own young daughter in order to supplicate the gods to grant his army victory. Unfortunately, in the one ancient Greek play that has come down to us that bears his name (the first segment of the Oresteia) he is killed off rather early.

Only seven of his estimated seventy to ninety plays have survived into modern times, and there is a longstanding debate about his authorship of one of these plays, Prometheus Bound. He was probably the first dramatist to present plays as a trilogy and his Oresteia is the only ancient example of the form to have survived. At least one of his works was influenced by the Persian invasion of Greece, which took place during his lifetime. This play, The Persians, is the only extant classical Greek tragedy concerned with recent history and it is a useful source of information about that period.< Less
