The Agamemnon of Aeschylus is the first play in The Trilogy of the Oresteia, which deals with the eternal problem of the evil act causing vengeance which wreaks more evil which must be avenged. Aeschylus declares that the new ruler in heaven, Zeus, heralds the end of this cycle and the beginning of hope. Zeus has suffered and sinned and grown wise, and thereby shows humans how to grow wise also.

Did the ancient Greeks really go to war over the elopement of Helen of Troy, as Homer and the ancients would have us believe? Agamemnon's War, a provocative, fictional narrative based on the Trojan War, follows the heroes of the age as they speak for themselves: Odysseus, who is conflicted in his mind over the impending war and his part in it; a hesitant Achilles, who ultimately pays for his involvement with his life before he can enjoy any of the rewards that come with victory; and King Agamemnon, who is swayed easily by the conniving Nestor, ruler of Pylos. Author Paramesh Nayar covers a strange and volatile mix of geopolitical considerations that drives the Greeks to great victory over their rivals and seals their hegemony over the regions for decades. But as in all wars, the loss is borne most heavily by the common people-the soldier on the ground, schooled in great traditions and honor, meeting with brutal reality, and the bereaved family members of the fallen. In Agamemnon's War, the loss is the same, then and now

From Homer to Himmler, from Thucydides to Freud, Mycenae has occupied a singular place in the western imagination. Gere takes us from the Cult of the Hero that sprung up in the shadow of the great burned walls in the eighth century BC, to Agamemnon's twentieth-century reincarnation as an Aryan military genius and to the distinctly anti-heroic conclusions of modern archaeology. The Wonders of the World is a series of books that focuses on some of the world's most famous sites or monuments. Their names will be familiar to almost everyone: they have achieved iconic stature and are loaded with a fair amount of mythological baggage. These monuments have been the subject of many books over the centuries, but our aim, through the skill and stature of the writers, is to get something much more enlightening, stimulating, even controversial, than straightforward histories or guides.
