Agamemnon

In his preamble to a discussion of Agamemnon, Dr. White decries the absence of an American “golden age of theatre” and describes film as a bastard theatrical form that combines art and technology but lacks a connection to the audience. Greek theater on the other hand is a communal experience: In the case of Agamemnon, an experience essentially between man and wife that eventually becomes a war of the gods. Dr. White calls it a brilliantly constructed play with elements calling to mind Adam and Eve and original sin.
