An Eighth Day View:
In the Oresteia--the only trilogy in Greek drama which survives from antiquity-- Aeschylus took as his subject the bloody chain of murder and revenge within the royal family of Argos. Moving from darkness to light, from rage to self-governance, from primitive ritual to civilized institution, it's spirit of struggle and regeneration is eternal.
