Available for free legal download on Wikisource and the gallicabnffrWhile Aeschylus is somewhat dry in comparison to Aristophanes s or Racine s work the three unities time space action give the three parts of the Oresteia and the other four a historical flavour It can be long winded and melodramatic but easier to follow for an intermediate reader of French and the pictures are nice so there s an extra star

Aeschylus ß 7 FREE DOWNLOAD READ & DOWNLOAD ß eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ß Aeschylus READ & DOWNLOAD Aeschylus Of the seventy or eighty plays which he is said to have written only seven survive The Suppliant Maidens on the daughters of Danas; The Persians dealing with the defeat of Xerxes at Salamis; The Seven against Thebes part of a tetra logy on the legend of Thebes; Prometheus Bound part of a trilogy of which the first part was probably Prometheus the Fire bringer and the last Prometheus Unbound; and the Oresteia The House of Atreus the only example of a complete Greek tragic trilogy which has come down to us consisting of Agamemnon Choephor. The Classical Greeks placed a very high value on drama A dramatic competition was included in the Olympic Games in stark contrast to the purely physical contests included in the modern Olympics and Aristotle set himself the task in the Poetics of analyzing what made successful drama Still only about 50 Greek tragedies have survived the nearly 2500 years that have elapsed since the heyday of the GreeksThis volume contains all surviving surviving plays by Aeschylus A couple of the entries ring hollow to modern ears or at least to my modern ears The dramatic scenario of The Suppliant Maidens concerning 40 young women who flee from Egypt to avoid being forced to marry their cousins is far enough from modern concerns that it comes off flat This play also isn t helped by the fact that it was the first play of a three play trilogy the remaining two of which have been lost As a result we can t see the full development of the drama Similarly Seven Against Thebes consists largely of descriptions of the armor and heraldry of the participants While the ancients no doubt were familiar with this type of material and considered it dramatic and entertaining it does not possess the same interest for modern readersThe remaining five plays however retain their power even 2500 years after they were written The Persians is notable as the only surviving Greek tragedy that dealt with then current events rather than mythological characters and stories The play is set at the Persian Emperor s court in the immediate aftermath of Greece s great naval victory at Salamis which saved Greece from Persian overlordship The play treats the Persians as defeated heroes on a par with the mythological Trojans or Greece s own heroes This empathetic portrayal of Greece s mortal enemy written not long after Greece s desperate battles against the invading Persians is truly stunningPrometheus Bound is based on the legend of Prometheus the Titan who took pity on mankind and gave them the secret of fire ie science and technology and was punished by Zeus for this act of charity by being chained to a rock and tormented by a giant bird which tore out and ate his liver only to return the next day and repeat the whole agonizing scenario after the liver had grown back Titans being immortal their organs were able to regenerate The play is a political allegory with Zeus standing in for the tyrants and would be tyrants jostling for power in Athens In addition to being powerful drama and non traditional in that it completely ignores Aristotle s rules for successful drama this play is noteworthy for the contempt it heaps on Zeus in his role as tyrant Clearly Aeschylus did not worship the Olympian gods and apparently enough of the public had joined him to allow the play to avoid the charge of sacrilegeThe Oresteian Trilogy Agamemnon The Libation Bearers and The Eumenides is most powerful of all These plays concern Agamemnon the mythical king who was appointed to lead the Greek assault on Troy When the Greeks offended one of the Gods something which happened all the time in Greek mythology the Greek fleet was becalmed Eventually Agamemnon as commander was informed by an oracle that he would have to sacrifice his beloved daughter Iphegenia to appease the God Faced with this fatal choice Agamemnon killed Iphegenia enabling the Greeks to proceed with their attack on Troy and setting the stage for the action of the plays The trilogy is a cycle of sin revenge that itself is sinful and leads to still violence and ultimate redemption It is powerful stuff which has fascinated thrilled and appalled men and women for over 2500 years and much longer than that if one goes back to the original myths
