Charting the Structure of Aeschylus' Agamemnon

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

Bee Docs' Timeline customer Mary McMenomy of Ohio State University sent me the following timeline of the play Agamemnon. She writes, "My goal with this diagram was to demonstrate to the students how scenes of the play alternate with interludes from the Greek chorus, and how the choral passages themselves get shorter over the course of the play."

Interestingly, Ms McMenomy used "years" as the date format but instead of charting time, she is using line numbers from the Grene and Lattimore translation of the Greek text. It is a great idea so perhaps you might want to consider charting poetry using Bee Docs' Timeline too!

great stuff - well done! innovative, intelligent application of an excellent app.

Perhaps when u have time ... the rest of the Oresteia? - with perhaps the addition of hyperlinks to docs containing the text referred to in each 'event'?

How did she get the timeline to split in half?

Her timeline is great, and I've always wanted to have two timelines arranged like hers: one above the other. How can I achieve this?
