Prometheus bound by Aeschylus( Book )

1,032 editions published between 1552 and 2016 in 18 languages and held by 5,585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest of the classical Greek dramas, based on the Greek legend of the Titan demi-god who, against the will of Zeus, stole fire from the gods for the benefit of man. His terrible punishment by Zeus, and his continuing defiance of Zeus in the face of that punishment, remain universal symbols of man's vulnerability in any struggle with the gods
The Persians by Aeschylus( Book )

761 editions published between 1804 and 2016 in 15 languages and held by 4,627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combines the spellbinding dramatization of an actual battle with a searing indictment of war that transcends the centuries
Agamemnon by Aeschylus( Book )

942 editions published between 1785 and 2017 in 26 languages and held by 4,304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Agamemnon makes a powerful impact on most audiences, even if they are unacquainted with the techniques of Aeschylean tragedy. Its subject is the human condition in its widest aspect
Seven against Thebes by Aeschylus( Book )

445 editions published between 1779 and 2017 in 10 languages and held by 3,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the wake of Oedipus's exile, the cursed sons of his incestuous marriage, Eteocles and Polynices, vow to avoid further bloodshed by ruling Thebes in alternate years. However, when Eteocles refuses to step down after the first year of the arrangement, Polynices raises an army led by seven Argive champions to retake Thebes by force. Fearing the invaders, and feeling the fear of his people, Eteocles vows to fight Polynices man to man for the future of the city. Instead, they kill one another in battle beneath the seventh gate of the city, leading directly to the dilemma of their sister, Antigone, and her ultimate demise
Aeschylus. by Aeschylus( Book )

695 editions published between 1614 and 2016 in 12 languages and held by 2,836 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aeschylus (ca. 525-456 BCE), the dramatist who made Athenian tragedy one of the world's great art forms, witnessed the establishment of democracy at Athens and fought against the Persians at Marathon. He won the tragic prize at the City Dionysia thirteen times between ca. 499 and 458, and in his later years was probably victorious almost every time he put on a production, though Sophocles beat him at least once
The Eumenides by Aeschylus( Book )

383 editions published between 1794 and 2015 in 12 languages and held by 2,557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sommerstein presents a freshly constituted text, with introduction and commentary, of Eumenides, the climactic play of the only surviving complete Greek tragic trilogy, the Oresteia of Aeschylus. Of all Athenian tragic dramas, Eumenides is most consciously designed to be relevant to the situation of the Athenian state at the time of its performance (458 B.C.) and seems to have contained daring innovations both in technique and in ideas. The introduction and commentary to this edition seek to bring out how Aeschylus shaped to his purpose the legends he inherited, and ended the tragic story of Agamemnon's family in a celebration of Athenian civic unity and justice. The commentary also pays attention to the linguistic, metrical and textual problems to be encountered by the reader

Aeschyli Tragoediae : cum incerti poetae Prometheo by Aeschylus( Book )

468 editions published between 1557 and 2006 in 8 languages and held by 1,772 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classical scholar and philologist Gottfried Hermann (1772-1848), professor of classics at Leipzig, was especially influential in the fields of Greek grammar and poetical metres. He was among the leading scholars who argued that an accurate knowledge of the Greek and Latin languages was crucial for understanding the intellectual life of the ancient world, and should be the chief aim of philology, the study of the development of languages. Only seven of the plays of Aeschylus, the father of Greek tragedy, survive in complete form, and Hermann's was the first critical edition to contain all of them. It was published in Leipzig in two volumes in 1852, four years after his death. Volume 1 contains the texts of all of Aeschylus' tragedies and of Prometheus Bound, of which the authorship is attributed to Aeschylus, and an appendix of notes

However, when warned by the gods that his brother plans to murder him and his daughters, Danaus flees with the Danaids to Argos, where he is taken in by the King of Argos. Aegyptus challenges the people of Argos to give up their refugees, but the King and his people refuse, allowing the Danaids sanctuary
Fifteen Greek plays by Lane Cooper( Book )

The libation bearers by Aeschylus( Book )

90 editions published between 1811 and 2016 in 10 languages and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An unfortunate result of the eagerness of modern commentators to lay stress on Aeschylus as a thinker and religious poet has been the frequent neglect to observe The Libation Bearers, like Agamemnon, is full of suspense, action, and skillfully contrived surprise
