The world in the first play is not like our own at all. The people are like animals. They kill and seek revenge and then make no big deal out of it. The people in today’s world are at least civilized. Of course, we do see some people in this world who murder and some others who seek revenge persistently, but for the most part the people in our world today do not act like this. People in today’s society also do not have a connection with fake gods like we see in Orestia. Our world is better than the world Aeschylus shows us in this play.
