Summary

This collection presents the works of the three fathers of ancient Greek tragedies: Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides.

The listner of this collection will be able to comprehend how the plots and conflicts populating classical tragedy developed.

The principle theme of Aeschylus' tragedies is the idea of fate being omnipotent and the futility in struggling against it.

The tragedies of Sophocles reflect the era of the Greeks' victorious war against the Persians, which opened up commercial prosperity through trade.

Euripides propels his dramas by incorporating conflicts from within the human psyche.

Great but….

The 3 parts of the Orestia seem to be in the wrong order with the trial before the murder of Clytemnestra……this undermines the dramatic effect considerably
