Let my loud summons ring within the ears Of Agamemnon's queen, that she anon Start from her couch and with a shrill voice cry A joyous welcome to the beacon-blaze, For Ilion's fall; such fiery message gleams From yon high flame; and I, before the rest, Will foot the lightsome measure of our joy; For I can say, My.

Aeschylus Agamemnon, first produced in 458 BC, is the opening play in his Oresteian trilogy.

The Agamemnon is the first play of Aeschylus's Oresteia trilogy. It presents the return of Agamemnon in the aftermath of the Trojan War, as his homecoming gives way to the terrors of an ancient curse and family vengeance. Filled with accounts of war, sacrifices, confessions, prophecies, and prayers, it is a drama which begins both a brutal and compassionate journey toward redefining justice. Through the use of syllabic verse, this new translation maintains an organic link with the original Greek text, while recreating the music of the poetry in contemporary English.
