Iphigenia Picture

Part of my Greek Theatre project. Greek Mythology.

Iphigenia - Agamemnon - Aeschylus.

The chorus' description of Agamemnon's sacrifice of his daughter.
" 'My father, father!' She might pray to the windss;
no innocence moves her judges mad for war.
her father called his henchmen on,
on with prayer,
'Hoist her over the alter
like a yearling, give it all your strength!
She's fainting - lift her,
sweep her robes around her,
but slip a strap in her gentle curving lips...
here, gag her hard, a sound will curse the house'
and the bridle chokes her voice..."
