CWW: The Avenging Clytemnestra

May 11, 2016 – It’s Classical Wisdom Wednesday, presented by Classical Wisdom Weekly — bringing ancient wisdom to modern minds, every Wednesday morning before your first cup of coffee.

Lions, tigers, and bears- these are a few of the animals you might use to describe the devotion this one classical mother felt for her children. Clytemnestra is a controversial figure in the classical landscape. Was she an avenging mother? Or is it possible she is a crazed murderer?

Your guide through the classical landscape is Van Bryan, Associate Editor of Classical Wisdom Weekly. You can catch Classical Wisdom Wednesday every week before your first cup of coffee, right here on the History Author Show.
