Prometheus bound by Aeschylus( Book )

896 editions published between 1548 and 2015 in 21 languages and held by 6,180 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

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

The libation bearers by Aeschylus( Book )

23 editions published between 1923 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 758 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
Persians and other plays by Aeschylus( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The principal themes of the plays are inescapable conflict between brothers (Seven Against Thebes); the dilemma facing a community confronted with two sets of outsiders, one seeking revenge and the other in pursuit and threatening attack (Suppliants); and the defiance of the benevolent individual withstanding punitive tyranny and torture (Prometheus Bound). The Persians is the only extant Greek tragedy to treat a historical event, the repulse of the invasion of Greece by the Persian Empire in 480 BC; and it may contain Aeschylus' own first-hand account of the battle of Salamis."
