For those of you who love the Greek classics, this book has translations into English verse of three tragedies by the Greek playwright Æschylus. From the days when theatre productions were still new, Athenian audiences of up to 18,000 spectators watched the plays by Æschylus (he was a 1st prize winning playwright in his day- the fifth century.)
The Atreus family was quite an unlucky family. For generations, these god-defying descendants of Tantalus committed crimes that cried out for revenge: brother against brother, father against son, father against daughter, son against mother.
