Like its predecessors, Edipo classico e contemporaneo, edited by F. Citti and A. Iannucci (Hildesheim; Zürich; New York, 2012) and Troiane classiche e contemporanee, edited by F. Citti, A. Iannucci, A. Ziosi (Hildesheim; Zürich; New York, 2017) this new volume seeks to stage a dialogue between a Greek play and a Latin one, Aeschylus’s Agamemnon and its Latin rewriting by Seneca. But at the same time, this intertextual dialogue becomes, in turn, a fundamental hypotext for further and varied ‘rewritings’ of the myth and the story of Agamemnon, in plays, opera librettos, novels, films, paintings and reenactments, from the Renaissance to the present day, as many papers in this book show, with new and original insights in the ever-growing realm of Reception studies.
