From the Paper
Introduction
The ancient Greeks understood that there was an intimate relationship between humans and nature, a certain give and take that needed to happen for the humans to get what they needed to survive. For them, appeasing nature so that they could yoke her to their demands of rain when needed and sun when desired also meant appeasing the gods, who represented the different aspects of nature that humans needed to interact with in everyday life. The Greeks also saw nature as a force that acted independent of their desires, with separate rules and patterns that had nothing to do with human culture. This paper will explore the relationship between nature and human culture as depicted in the plays Oresteia, by Aeschylus, and Antigone, by Sophocles.
