Agamemnon - Aeschylus - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of Agamemnon:

The tale of the Great Agamemnon, king, and conqueror.
(Spoiler: Karma gets involved)

My favorite Aeschylus quote from the book:

"Death is an easier doom than slavery."

Questions to ponder while reading Agamemnon:

Can you get justice through revenge?

Can a family be cursed?

My thoughts about Agamemnon:

Another perspective on the Trojan saga.

A must-read for history/mythology lovers.

Ancient literature at its finest.
