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

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
Prometheus bound ; The suppliants ; Seven against Thebes ; The Persians by Aeschylus( Book )

688 editions published between 1559 and 2013 in 18 languages and held by 3,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aeschylus was the first of the great Greek tragedians. The four plays presented in this volume -- together with the Oresteian Trilogy -- are all that survive of his work. "The Persians" is set against the Athenian victory at Salamis, which took place only eight years before the play was written. In "Seven against Thebes" the two sons of Oedipus are relentlessly pursued to their death by a family curse. But in "The Suppliants" and "Prometheus" conflict of principle is resolved by rational compromise. [Back cover]

The Agamemnon of Aeschylus : a commentary for students by Aeschylus( Book )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This commentary discusses Aeschylus' play Agamemnon (458 BC), which is one of the most popular of the surviving ancient Greek tragedies, and is the first to be published in English since 1958. It is designed particularly to help students who are tackling Aeschylus in the original Greek for the first time, and includes a reprint of D.L. Page's Oxford Classical Text of the play. The introduction defines the place of Agamemnon within the Oresteia trilogy as a whole, and the historical context in which the plays were produced. It discusses Aeschylus' handling of the traditional myth and the main ideas which underpin his overall design: such as the development of justice and the nature of human responsibility; and it emphasizes how the power of words, seen as ominous speech-acts which can determine future events, makes a central contribution to the play's dramatic momentum. Separate sections explore Aeschylus' use of theatrical resources, the role of the chorus, and the solo characters. Finally there is an analysis of Aeschylus' distinctive poetic style and use of imagery, and an outline of the transmission of the play from 458 BC to the first printed editions."--Publisher's website
Persians and other plays by Aeschylus( Book )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "Based on the conviction that only translators who write poetry themselves can properly re-create the celebrated and timeless tragedies of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides, the Greek Tragedy in New Translations series offers new translations that go beyond the literal meaning of the Greek in order to evoke the poetry of the originals. Aeschylus' Oresteia, the only ancient tragic trilogy to survive, is one of the great foundational texts of Western culture. It begins with Agamemnon, which describes Agamemnon's return from the Trojan War and his murder at the hands of his wife Clytemnestra, continues with her murder by their son Orestes in Libation Bearers, and concludes with Orestes' acquittal at a court founded by Athena in Eumenides. The trilogy thus traces the evolution of justice in human society from blood vengeance to the rule of law, Aeschylus' contribution to a Greek legend steeped in murder, adultery, human sacrifice, cannibalism, and endless intrigue. This new translation is faithful to the strangeness of the original Greek and to its enduring human truth, expressed in language remarkable for poetic intensity, rich metaphorical texture, and a verbal density that modulates at times into powerful simplicity. The translation's precise but complicated rhythms honor the music of the Greek, bringing into unforgettable English the Aeschylean vision of a world fraught with spiritual and political tensions."
