Re: Aba

You are perfectly right in observing how these plays relate to our lives and they are a pointer to progress of culture, which is explained in Eumenides. I am glad that you find enjoyment in these classics, also a motivator for me.

Re: Kabu

Rightly said Kabu. The reason why we like Greek tragedies is the fact that they take you to the highest of the high and also to the lowest of the low of emotions, and they are true to human nature even today.

Aba

Oh, so interesting, and I really liked how you summarized. I feel we should also consider the role women played in the world at the time of the writings. But more so, the dilema of which way the moral compass points, how the play relates to our own lives, and how do we come to a decision and/or conclusion regarding of degrees of guilt. This is the crux of the beauty in the conflicts of the Greco/Roman tragedies and mythologies, to me. Very enjoyable, dear Aba.

nice summary; eloquent on Orestes' chauvinistic revenge on his "good" mom

Curses, sadly, have survived all our modern advances & wisdom. May I say that all curses are nullified in the life of one who surrenders to Jesus. I do believe, the truthful persons have power in their words; but any spoken word has power ... liars, of course, have the least powerful words. Thank God for that blessing in disguise!

ShalomShalom Sir! Happy Thanksgiving all the way

One thinks of the words...Honor your Mother and Father. But it is tough when Honoring your Father means killing your Mother. I do love the Greek tragedies.

Re: Shobana

yes, indeed so. In the next instalment Eumenides, we will see the beginnings of religion resulting from third tragedy. It will be the culmination of the series. Thank You For enjoying

Orestes thought that by killing his mother Clytemnestra he was doing right by his father but in the end he is consumed with guilt. A Malady indeed because his killing does not bring him the satisfaction he thought he would derive.
