Rebecca Cuba Classics: Ancient Tragedies  Prof. Gosetti Agamemnon The Wives Roles Ancient tragedy plays are sometimes parts of a sequel of stories. The play Agamemnon  is one of these Greek tragedies that are a part of a sequel. The Greek play Agamemnon is a  story of the journey of Agamemnon the king of Argo.  Agamemnon was away at war, the reason  for the war begins with Agamemnon's brother Menelaus. Menelaus' wife Helen eloped with  Paris, son of the Trojan king. Because of this one of the greatest wars of ancient time occur.  Agamemnon king of Argos agrees to accompany his brother in the war against the Trojans.  After years at war and a great defeat, Agamemnon returns to his homelands. Once he is home  he is betrayed and killed by his wife Clytemnestra.  Within this particular play the women play a  key role. The wives of the two kings play an even larger significant role. Within the play;  Agamemnon, the wives of the two kings are portrayed as the individuals that cause major  dilemmas, one wife is the reason for a horrific war, and the other kills her husband.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
