An Assay About Agamemnon by Aeschylus

The essay has to be from 1200 to 1500 words. It is about “Agamemnon” by Aeschylus, but it can only be the Norton Anthology of World Literature translation. I can send this to you if you don’t have it. The essay needs a thesis and also needs to be supported by at least 4 quotations from “Agamemnon” which again is located in the Norton Anthology of World Literature. As for a thesis, I was leaning towards the rules that Zeus puts forth in society (even though they aren’t set in stone) which are 1. Do not commit blasphemy 2. Do not kill family 3. Always be hospitable. I was thinking that when one character breaks a rule another character becomes an agent of Zeus and punishes the character who broke the rule. This was just my first idea, but it can be changed around as well. The quotations that are being used to support this have to be cited just with a page number in parentheses followed by a period. I’m not sure if this is standard MLA citation or my english teacher’s creation so this is what she wants it to look like “Quote from Agamemnon” (14). If the quote is more than four lines please single space it and indent it on both sides. A bibliography is not needed just the citations. Thank you for all the help. I would appreciate if you used my thesis, but I have no problem with you makeing changes to it for a more cohesive argument.
