A new translation of four of Aeschylus's finest works.
Illuminating the tragic grandeur for which Aeschylus has been celebrated, this fresh translation of "The Persians and Other Plays" shows how Aeschylus brought epic sweep to the drama of classical Athens, raising it to the status of high art. "The Persians," the only Greek tragedy to record events from recent Athenian history, depicts the final defeat of Persia in the battle of Salamis through the eyes of the Persian court. In "Prometheus Bound," the defiant Titan Prometheus is punished by Zeus for daring to improve the state of servitude in which mankind is kept. "Seven Against Thebes" shows the inexorable downfall of the last members of the cursed family of Oedipus, while "The Suppliants" relates the pursuit of the fifty daughters of Danaus by the fifty sons of Aegyptus, and their final rescue by a heroic king.
