Both Iphigenia and Cassandra

Both Iphigenia and Cassandra have been rendered voiceless, Iphigenia by her own father and Cassandra by the god Apollo. Without words

Both Iphigenia and Cassandra have been rendered voiceless, Iphigenia by her own father and Cassandra by the god Apollo. Without words (Greek Logos) to convey their pain, how do they do so? Does the inability to hear (as in the case of Iphigenia) or understand (as in the case of Cassandra) the pleas of these innocents allow the men bearing witness to escape responsibility?
Discuss the theme of justice as it expressed by Agamemnon, Clytemnestra, and Aegisthus. How do each of these characters see their role in dispensing justice? What about the “bigger picture” of justice do they miss? Is there any more comprehensive idea about justice that you think Aeschylus wants us to take away from the way these characters present the idea of justice?
