Pathos and Bathos: Backstories of the Ancient Greeks:

The stories of Classical Greece are considered central to an auspicious canon of western literature and history.  But the backstories of events like the Trojan war, how wine came to the symposia and the death of Agamemnon read more like the headlines from People Magazine and Gawker blog.  That mother and her boyfriend killed her….what? Drunken shepherds did what? That celebrity father did what to his daughter? Master storyteller Norah Dooley explores the backstories of objects in three rooms in the new Greek galleries; from the initiating incident of Homer’s epic ( Helen of Troy ) to the fate of the inventor of wine ( Ikarios and his daughter) and Aeuschylus' depiction of the "madness" of Clytemnestra ( death of Agamemnon).
