London, United Kingdom 1999 Paperback New 1853995738. FLAWLESS COPY, BRAND NEW, PRISTINE, NEVER OPENED--The author examines the seven extant plays of Aeschylus against the
political and military background of his time. As one who himself fought at the battle of Salamis, Aeschylus was profoundly concerned with military events (the messenger speech in Persians) and potitical changes (Eumenides). In this volume, Podlecki adopted a 'historicist' approach to tragedy, adding a new dimension to the understanding of Aeschylus' poetry. --TABLE OF CONTENTS: Select Bibliography * Preface to the First Edition * I Introduction * II Persians * III Seven Against Thebes * IV Suppliants * V Oresteia * VI Prometheus Bound * VII Conclusion * Appendixes * A.
