Why Start with The Oresteia and Agamemnon?

Ralph Williams (a fellow Canadian infatuated with archetypal stories) was a Professor of Literature at the University of Michigan.

Williams is a passionate teacher and an incredible storyteller. I hope you enjoy his video, and consider the lesson he wants to share.

Williams begins (at about 2:30) with an explanation the context of the Oresteia in Ancient Greek culture. But he also suggests just how meaningful this story can be today, during times of confused meanings for families and torn directions for individuals.
