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

Sure, a stellar personality is alluring, a sense of humor is essential, and inner beauty can be potent. But why not have all these and a tight butt? Red-carpet fashion laureate, comic icon, and outspoken superstar Joan Rivers is uniquely qualified to talk about plastic surgery: She's one of the few celebrities unafraid to admit what she's "had done." In a book that is part comic musing, part bitch-fest, and part hands-on advice, she makes a wildly frank and genuinely passionate argument for a woman's right to do whatever it takes to be beautiful

Aeschylus was a Greek playwright considered to be the founder of the tragedy. Aeschylus along with Sophocles and Euripides are the three major Greek tragedians whose plays have survived. Before Aeschylus, characters in a play only interacted with the chorus. Aeschylus expanded the number of actors allowing for interaction among the characters. Seven of his 92 plays have survived. The Persian invasion of Greece, which took place during his lifetime, influenced many of his plays. The Oresteia is a trilogy of Greek tragedies written by Aeschylus, which concerns the end of the cu
Persians and other plays by Aeschylus( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 75 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."
