Om författaren

Aeschylus was born at Eleusis of a noble family. He fought at the Battle of Marathon (490 b.c.), where a small Greek band heroically defeated the invading Persians. At the time of his death in Sicily, Athens was in its golden age. In all of his extant works, his intense love of Greece and Athens visa mer finds expression. Of the nearly 90 plays attributed to him, only 7 survive. These are The Persians (produced in 472 b.c.), Seven against Thebes (467 b.c.), The Oresteia (458 b.c.)---which includes Agamemnon, Libation Bearers, and Eumenides (or Furies) --- Suppliants (463 b.c.), and Prometheus Bound (c.460 b.c.). Six of the seven present mythological stories. The ornate language creates a mood of tragedy and reinforces the already stylized character of the Greek theater. Aeschylus called his prodigious output "dry scraps from Homer's banquet," because his plots and solemn language are derived from the epic poet. But a more accurate summation of Aeschylus would emphasize his grandeur of mind and spirit and the tragic dignity of his language. Because of his patriotism and belief in divine providence, there is a profound moral order to his plays. Characters such as Clytemnestra, Orestes, and Prometheus personify a great passion or principle. As individuals they conflict with divine will, but, ultimately, justice prevails. Aeschylus's introduction of the second actor made real theater possible, because the two could address each other and act several roles. His successors imitated his costumes, dances, spectacular effects, long descriptions, choral refrains, invocations, and dialogue. Swinburne's (see Vol. 1) enthusiasm for The Oresteia sums up all praises of Aeschylus; he called it simply "the greatest achievement of the human mind." Because of his great achievements, Aeschylus might be considered the "father of tragedy." (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Kort biografi
Aeschylus was an ancient Greek playwright. He is credited with an estimated 92 plays, though only seven have survived into modern times. He is known to have fought at the Battle of Marathon (490 BCE), which influenced his Persians (the only surviving Greek tragedy based on contemporary events) and probably at the Battle of Salamis (480).
Born at Eleusis in 525 BCE, he started producing tragedies at Athens in 499, and had his first victory in 484. He visited Sicily at least twice, and died there at Gela in 456.



Vid en klippa i Skytien fängslas han, vid en orubblig sten naglas han fast. Gudasmidda band håller honom, Hefaistos kedjor stannar hans flykt. Eldgivaren straffas, Zeus fiende plågas.

Aischylos Den fjättrade Prometheus är en lite udda pjäs: jag vet inte om den egentligen bör kallas tragedi, trots att Prometheus när den är över kommer att stå fjättrad vid sin klippa i tretton generationer innan Herakles befriar honom: för det är han för okuvligt stolt, för trotsig i nederlaget.

Som alla grekiska pjäser drivs denna främst av dialog, förutom mellan Prometheus och Hefaistos när han låses vid klippan, övervakade av Zaus hantlangare Makt, så mellan Prometheus och kören, som är en samling avkomlingar till Okeanos, och mellan Prometheus och den irrande Io, som han pekar ut vägen till Egypten för. Man förstår att Zeus nyss tagit makten, att Prometheus hjälpt honom, och att han sedan hjälpt människorna ut ur oförståndet, mot civilisationen: det är detta som fått Zeus att ana en utmaning och störta honom. Prometheus sitter dock fortfarande med ett trumf: han har sett en dumhet som Zeus är på väg att begå, vet att den kan leda till hans fall.

Den fjättrade Prometheus är långt ifrån den bästa antika pjäs jag läst: den innehåller en del intressant, men ingen riktig lyftning. Den stolthet i nederlaget som Prometheus uppvisar må vara grundad, men leder inte till någon större rörelse.
