CC348/CTI345: Moral Agency in Greek Tragdey Study Questions to Aeschylus’      Agamemnon      #2, ll.355-680     15) In the first stanza of the first stasimon (ll.355-66), why does the Chorus say  Zeus punished Troy? 16) In the first strophe of the stasimon (ll.367-84), what imagery does the  Chorus use to describe Paris’ crime?  17) In the antistrophe (ll.385-402), Paris is described as like “a child that  strives to catch the bird flying”.  How does this reverse imagery used in the  parodos? What is the effect? 18) In the second strophe (ll. 403-19), the Chorus changes it focus from Paris  to Helen. Why do they do this? 19) In the next three stanzas (ll.420-74), how does the Chorus continue to  reflect on the consequences of Paris’ and Helen’s actions for both the  primary characters and the rank and file of the army?  What does the  Chorus fear may happen? 20)
