Ill Morals and Politics in the Oresteia 1 HEN Aeschylus wrote, no distinction between morals and politics had yet been drawn. 2 But in our day the moral and the political element in the Oresteia have usually been examined separately. Thus, for example, Professor Dover, in his thoughtful paper on 'The Political Aspect of the Eumenides', J makes no attempt to connect this aspect with the moral issues raised in the earlier part of the trilogy. And Sir Richard Livingstone, in his paper on 'The Problem of the Eumenides', denied, if I understand him correctly, that any real link exists: 'The last 350 lines of the Eumenides', he says bluntly, 'are not an integral part of the trilogy.
S Yet the language of contemporary politics is not wholly absent from the earlier parts. 6 Its most striking intrusion 1 A paper read to the Cambridge Philological Society, 14 January 1960, and published in its Proceedings, No. 186 (196o), after revision in the light of subsequent discussion at an Oxford class on 'Politics in Greek Tragedy', to whose members I am indebted for much helpful criticism. 2 Cf. Jaeger, Paicleia, i. 323 (English edition, 1939). S. 45 (1925), I23f. S. 77 (1957), 230ff.

I propose to offer some account of this controversy, because it illustrates so well the way in which contemporary issues are mirrored in the world of learning, and also the way in which the human weaknesses of scholars pervert their judgement and yet sometimes in the end contribute to the progress of scholarship.
