|Title: ||Ethos and Ate in Agamemnon|
|Issue Date: ||2016-12-09 10:22:40 (UTC+8)|
Though present in the drama only briefly, Agamemnon is the fons et origo of much of the dramatic action and commentary, for both result specifically from decisions he made prior to his departure from Argos, while at Aulis and, finally, upon his return to Argos. These decisions disclose Agamemnon's ethos, and are further related in that the force of ate seems to be an influence in each. Agamemnon, then, is defined in terms of a morality based upon the intellect, for ate is essentially a failure of the intellect. Knowledge of events prior to the Greek arrival at Troy is somewhat obscured by the rhetorical intention of the Chorus, who seek to justify Agamemnon's traditional (male) regime in response to the challenge by Clytemnestra's non- traditional (female) regime. In the attempt to detach plot from rhetoric, the discussion of lines 40-263 is divided according to content, resulting in several internal parallel-sections. The section considering Agamemnon at Troy and Argos is divided into the Herald's return (503-680), the second stasimon (681-782), speeches by both Agamemnon and Clytemnestra (783-913), and the stichomythia between the two (914-57).
