XLVI: Matricide Mania! Furies, Furies Everywhere (The Oresteia Part 3) Let's Talk About Myths, Baby! A Greek & Roman Mythology Podcast

    • Arts

It's time for part three in our series on the Oresteia. If you thought the previous parts had drama, you just wait! Orestes and Electra take their anger out against their mother, Clytemnestra, her lover, Aegisthus, and even their aunt and uncle. A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. Given it's ancient fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.Sponsors! www.zola.com/mythsbaby for a free wedding website and $50 off your registry.Sources: Electra by Euripides, translated by John Davie, and Orestes by Euripides, translated by Robin Waterfield.Theme music taken from is "Xenobiological Forest" by Komiku from It's Time for Adventure, is licensed via Creative Commons and is Public Domain.
