Learn about the fate of Agamemnon, according to Homer's Odyssey, Book XI, by listening to his ghost telling Odysseus how he was murdered.

Agamemnon’s daughter, Suzana, also a protagonist in The Successor, is here the narrator’s lover, though she only appears indirectly through the latter’s reminiscing. In 1843, botanist Kunth published Iphigenia, which is a plant genus in the family Colchicaceae and it was named after Iphigenia. David Bellos, Director of the Program in Translation at Princeton University, is also the translator of Georges Perec's Life A User's Manual and a winner of the Goncourt Prize for biography. summary: In the first stasimon of Medea, the chorus of Corinthian women exalts Medea's revenge as a palinode that will put an end to the misogynist tradition and bring them honor.Athena sends Iphigenia to the sanctuary of Artemis at Brauron where she is to be the priestess until she dies.

One after the other the surgeon's children are plagued with paralysis (a direct allusion to Agamemnon's immobile armies) and the surgeon's family is forced to sacrifice one of its members to atone for the accidental surgical killing.Written by Albania’s best known novelist, who experienced totalitarianism firsthand, all three are extremely spare in terms of plot, yet riveting. Aeschylus’ Agamemnon shows how the leader of the Greek expedition against Troy, the instrument of Zeus’ punishment of the Trojans, comes to a miserable end. In Madeline Miller's The Song of Achilles, Iphigenia comes to Aulis under the belief that she is to marry Achilles.

You could tell who they were, not only because they were dressed to the nines, but from their attitudes, their postures, and their beaming faces. The title story is set in Tirana in the 1980s, as the unnamed narrator unexpectedly finds himself granted a ticket to the senior stands at the annual May Day Parade (normally the preserve of the communist party elite).
