The most renowned of Aeschylus' tragedies and one of the foundational texts of Western literature, the Oresteia trilogy is a profound look at family honor and the individual's need for exoneration. Eloquently translated here by Oliver Taplin, Agamemnon chronicles Queen Clytemnestra's scheme to avenge herself on her husband, who sacrificed their daughter's life. The Women at the Graveside and Orestes in Athens deal with the aftermath of the regicide, Orestes' search to avenge his father's death, and Greece's transformation from anarchy to democracy.
