Language:

Genres:
Historical

Aeschylus (525/524 – c. 456/455 BC) was an ancient Greek tragedian. He is one of those tragedians whose plays still survive. Most part of critics consider and describe that he is the father of such theater phenomenon as tragedy. He is also the first whose plays still survive. He is often described as the father of tragedy due to expanding a number of characters in plays to allow conflict among them whereas characters previously had interacted only with the chorus. The “Prometheus Bound” is the seventh tragedy by Aeschylus that became one the most popular legends that contemporary society knows. The tragedy is based on the myth of Prometheus, a Titan who disobeyed gods and gave the secret of fire to humanity, for which he was subjected to eternal punishment.
