Aeschylus' Persae, first produced in 472 BC, is the oldest surviving Greek tragedy. it's also the one extant Greek tragedy that bargains, no longer with a mythological topic, yet with an occasion of modern historical past, the Greek defeat of the Persians at Salamis in 480 BC. in contrast to Aeschylus' different surviving performs, it really is it seems that now not a part of a attached trilogy. during this re-creation A. F. Garvie encourages the reader to evaluate the Persae by itself phrases as a drama. it's not a patriotic get together, or a play with a political manifesto, yet a real tragedy, which, faraway from proposing an easy ethical of hybris punished via the gods, poses questions pertaining to human pain to which there are not any effortless solutions. In his creation Garvie defends the play's constitution opposed to its critics, and considers its variety, the potential for thematic hyperlinks among it and the opposite performs offered through Aeschylus at the similar get together, its staging, and the nation of the transmitted textual content. The remark develops in larger element a few of the conclusions of the Introduction.
