Las Siete Tragedias (Sepan Cuantos, #11)

Las Siete Tragedias (Sepan Cuantos, #11) - Aeschylus While reading the text I couldn't notice it was very reminiscent of Homer's work, like in the way warriors' lineage and skills were listed and the use of some similes. Being aware that the texts are incomplete, I still got the feeling that most tragedies weren't really that tragic; I can't help comparing them with Sophocles' tragedies, which seemed to me more engaging and powerful. For example, Aeschylus' tragedies are all about characters looking back and telling what already happened just to come to a conclusion a while later, instead of giving more dynamic in action and dialogue. Yet I gotta say The Oresteia was an exception to this, definitely my favorite tragedy in the lot; Clytemnestra is one hell of a character and stole the show for me.
