Not yet rated | write a review

This volume complements D.J. Conacher's two earlier studies of Aeschylus, Aeschylus' `Prometheus Bound' (1980) and Aeschylus' `Oresteia' (1987), and completes his literary commentary on the extant plays of Aeschylus.

In this volume Conacher provides a detailed running commentary on the three earlier plays (The Persians, The Seven against Thebes, and The Suppliants), as well as an analysis of their themes, structure and dramatic techniques and devices. In two more general studies he reviews Aeschylus' dramatic uses of the chorus and of imagery.

Conacher's close readings of the text and sensitive analysis of the main problems in the plays will be of benefit to students, especially those encountering these plays for the first time, either in Greek or in translation. He also provides a thorough overview of the various interpretative and philological problems and opinions encountered in Aeschylean scholarship, which will be of interest to senior scholars as well as students.

Two more general studies discuss Aeschylus' dramatic use of imagery and the Chorus. Aeschylus: The Earlier Plays and Related Studies will be of interest to students encountering these plays for the first time and to senior scholars, who will appreciate the considerable interpretations of three of Aeschylus' lesser known works.
