Nationality: Greek

Occupation: Poet

Bio: Aeschylus was the first of the three ancient Greek tragedians whose plays can still be read or performed, the others being Sophocles and Euripides. He is often described as the father of tragedy: our knowledge of the genre begins with his work and our understanding of earlier tragedies is largely based on inferences from his surviving plays.

Quote of the day

He possessed simplicity and liberality, qualities which beyond a certain limit lead to ruin.
Tacitus
