    Written in 472 B.C., Aeschylus s Persians is the oldest surviving play in the history of Western drama How astonishing, then, to consider that the first piece of Greek tragedy to come down to us was written not from a Greek perspective, but ostensibly from that of an implacable enemy defeated a mere eight years prior an enemy that had terrorized all the Greeks, enslaved many of them, and had sacked the very city in which the play was first performed Aeschylus, along with many of the play s original v Written in 472 B.C., Aeschylus s Persians is the oldest surviving play in the history of Western drama How astonishing, then, to consider that the first piece of Greek tragedy to come down to us was written not from a Greek perspective, but ostensibly from that of an implacable enemy defeated a mere eight years prior an enemy that had terrorized all the Greeks, enslaved many of them, and had sacked the very city in which the play was first performed Aeschylus, along with many of the play s original viewers, was likely at the Battle of Salamis The graphic imagery conjured by the Persian Messenger the sea being so cluttered with corpses and debris that one couldn t see the water bodies clustering on the shoreline like litter Athenian marines using the splintered, jagged ends of their rowing oars to skewer wounded Persians in the water like fish were probably drawn no...

    Aeschylus wrote over ninety plays, and of the 7 that survive complete today, Persians is one of them This may not seem like anything particularly noteworthy, anyso than any of his plays having survived, until you take into account its historical importance Aeschylus was Greek, and fought the Persians at the Battle of Salamis, during the second Persian invasion of Greece you re probably familiar with the contemporary battle of Thermopile, immortalized so well in Frank Miller s book300This book, told Aeschylus wrote over ninety plays, and of the 7 that survive complete today, Persians is one of them This may not seem like anything particularly noteworthy, anyso than any of his plays having survived, until you take into account its historical importance Aeschylus was Greek, and fought the Persians at the Battle of Salamis, during the second Persian invasion of Greece you re probably familiar with the contemporary battle of Thermopile, immortalized so well in Frank Miller s book300This book, told from the perspective of the vanquished Xerxes, is therefore a firsthand account of that battle, in a roundabout way What are the chances that of ninety plays, it would be one of the 7 that survive My wife points out that its historical importance makes it a likely candidate for preservation True enough, but still wow.I should probably muster up five stars for the sucker, but my Grecian read Western sympathies are so deeply ingrained that I couldn t get involved in the Persian...
