The Oresteia trilogy
Even if you've never read a "classic," read this. The Oresteia trilogy is the most intense, powerful, bloody, sad and beautiful drama I have ever read. The latest Hollywood films can’t compare for plot, intrigue, violence, gore, entertainment, or creativity. From the plays' depiction of horrendous and unspeakable crimes to its climactic courtroom drama, you'll see why so many ancient playgoers fainted in the audience and why modern readers are so shocked and on the edge of their armchairs.
