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 Suppliants” is a great example of ancient Greek tragedy written during the Classical period of Ancient Greece by the Greek tragedian Aeschylus. The plot of the story focuses on Danaids that form the chorus and serve as the protagonist, they managed to flee a forced marriage to their Egyptian cousins and when Danaids reach Argos and entreat King Pelasgus to protect them.
