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]
