Agamemnon makes a triumphal entry in a chariot. Cassandra is at his side, and they are  accompanied by attendants. The elders greet their king with a frank statement intended to avoid superfluous praise yet give him  the honor to which he is entitled. They remind Agamemnon of their opposition to the war but express  genuine pleasure that he is home again. The elders add that Agamemnon will soon learn who has  been loyal and who disloyal during his absence. Agamemnon states that he will offer thanks to all the gods of Argos for his safe return and for their  aid in conquering Troy. Everything that happens on earth, he says, is determined by the gods. Men  must always remember to praise and thank them for their assistance. After the sacrifice,  Agamemnon continues, he will act in accordance with the advice given by the elders and will  convene an assembly of the people to settle all disputes and end dissension before trouble arises.

    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.
