    Aeschylus (Author), Edmund Doidge Anderson Morshead (Translator)
Aeschylus was an ancient Greek tragedian. In addition to Sophocles and Euripides, Aeschylus is the first whose ancient classical plays still survive. Aeschylus is often described as the father of tragedy and many critics and scholars' knowledge of Greek, ancient medieval literature, and dramas plays begins with his work, and understanding of earlier tragedies is largely based on inferences from Aeschylus surviving plays. Among his surving plays is The Seven against Thebes. The Seven against Thebes is the third play in an Oedipus-themed trilogy produced by Aeschylus in 467 BC. The drama play consists of rich dialogues between the citizens of Thebes and their king Eteocles regarding the threat of the hostile army before their gates. The Seven against Thebes is often required textbook reading in the following disciplines: English, literature fiction, Ancient Medieval Literature, Greek, ancient classical, dramas plays, tragedy, world literature, and history.
