In this twelve-week course, your student will complete writing exercises based around Aeschylus’s Greek play the Agamemnon (6th-5th century AD). For the first six days, your student will complete exercises focused on sentence style and paragraph structure. During the last six days, he or she will write an analytical essay on the Agamemnon. Following our basic instructions, your student will progress easily from the thesis statement to the outline to the final draft.

N. B. We recommend Richmond Lattimore’s translation.
