Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: This collection of "Greek Tragedy" is a representative selection of some of the greatest works from the classical period. Aeschylus' "Agamemnon" is the first play in the Oresteia trilogy. The work regards the homecoming of its titular character, where his wife, Clytemnestra, has been planning his murder. Sophocles' "Oedipus Rex" is the first play in the Oedipus trilogy. It details the king's quest for retribution for the murder of the last king, whose killer has yet to be brought to justice. Euripides' "Medea" is probably the author's most famous work. It is the tale of a wife's vengance against her husband for leaving her. Aristophanes' "The Frogs," is the lone comedy of the group. It is the story of the god Dionysus, who travels to Hades to bring the playwright Euripides back from the dead. Lastly we have Aristotle's "Poetics," the world's first treatise on dramatic theory. This collection provides an introduction to the most significant Greek authors from classical antiquity. Their influence on literature cannot be understated as it would lay the foundation for all modern drama.
