Love Becomes Electra - 2 - - Poem by Paolo Giuseppe Mazzarello

In the O'Neill's play Lavinia would be a new Electra, who instigated to commit murder of her mother Clystemnestra, in the myth as well as in the Sophocles's tragedy. Agamennon, Electra's father, had been killed by Clystemnestra with her own hands. Agamennon had just come back from Troy, were he had fought for ten years. Troubles of the war.

Electra and Lavinia aren't the same woman,
The Greek gets her mum killed, the American goes besides.
Active men love women under the Greek sun,
As similar men under the Star Spangled Banner:
About their love they do a quick sum,
Find out if their women come out happier.

The End
