Someone please explain why some people like Agamemnon? Like I'm seriously confused. Wasn't he a rapist, also had his daughter sacrificed
Maybe I have wrong sources. /gen
Idk about the rapist bit, I don't know enough about his lore. As for the daughter, he did sacrifice his daughter to appease the gods yeah, but he's a complex guy, and it wasn't clear cut. he isn't exactly my favorite but he intrigues me in that he does so many wrong things out of arrogance or reverence for the gods or a sense of duty, and it's like watching a man who's doomed by the narrative actively try to fight it and only pushing himself closer. His bloodline being cursed is also a funky addition to that, and a possible influence on his actions if you allow. He's deeply flawed and makes so many mistakes, but you can't deny that he doesn't care
I think that's the one thing about Agamemnon discourse I dislike, that people say that he didn't care for Iphigenia at all to have sacrificed her. The thing is that love he had for her is what made it a sacrifice, otherwise it wouldn't be anything more than a bull or bird sacrifice. The tragedy of it is that a child is killed for war, a man chooses to be king over being a father, a mother loses a daughter, and the curse of a bloodline continues
By which I mean I blasted enough insecticide in my room to kill a horse, trapped all the mist in for an entire night, and then checked in the morning. The roach is nowhere to be seen, even with a somewhat thorough cleanse of the room.
i am so unbelievably ungodly hyped to see you draw odysseus on circe's island just because i know youre going to make him look like the most tormented wet beast that ever existed and i will enjoy his pain while also sobbing at the same time
