Description - Six Greek Tragedies by Aeschylus

The work of these three Athenian playwrights became the touchstone for drama for the next two and a half thousand years. This volume contains Aeschylus' "Persians", the earliest surviving Greek tragedy; his "Prometheus Bound", presenting an archtype of the human condition; Sophocles' "Women of Trachis", protraying Heracles death through his jealous wife's mistake; his "Philoctetes", which presents a moral debate and a young man's realization of the importance of loyalty to his own ideals; Euripides "Trojan Women", an anti-war play; and his "Bacchae", a play full of paradoxes which functions at many levels.
