Agamemnon was proud and self-centered. He didn't think about his actions..... he was impetuous, thinking of no one but himself. Murdering his own daughter was a great sin, something that his wife would never forgive. Then he publicly displayed his mistress, alienating and humiliating Clytemnestra once more. The combination of these things led Clytemnestra to plan his murder, an end for which he must be said to hold a great portion of the responsibility.
