Prometheus and Other Plays: Prometheus Bound; The Suppliants; Seven Against Thebes and The Persians, Aeschylus [Phillip Vellacott - Translated with an introduction]
3 Aeschylus [Phillip Vellacott - Translated with an introduction] Prometheus and Other Plays: Prometheus Bound; The Suppliants; Seven Against Thebes and The Persians
Penguin Classics 240239 London, England. 1966 Reprint Softcover Good Condition (ex-library) No Dust Jacket The first of the great Greek Tragedians, Aeschylus wrote a large number of plays, of which seven survive. Of the four included in this volume, The Persians is unique in Greek tragedy in having as its subject matter a recent historical event, the defeat of the Persians at the famous battle of Salamis. The other three, Prometheus, The Suppliants and Seven Against Thebes, were all written as parts of trilogies and take their themes from Greek legend, but in each Aeschylus' interpretation reflects the new morality of classical Athens. Thus, in Seven Against Thebes the fate of the two main figures, Eteocles and Polyneices, is not entirely controlled by the gods, for Eteocles is free to choose whether or not he should fight his brother. And in Prometheus and The Suppliants Aeschylus shows that although the struggle of reason against violence can never be an easy one, it is reason that is the proper principle of civilized life. 160 pages. Pages browned. Inscription to previous owner on front endpaper. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Plays; Theatre & Plays; Inventory No: 240239. Paperback

The Pelican History of Music Volume I: Ancient Forms to Polyphony, Alec Robertson and Denis Stevens [Editor]
7 Alec Robertson and Denis Stevens [Editor] The Pelican History of Music Volume I: Ancient Forms to Polyphony
Pelican / Penguin Books 232590 Great Britain 1966 Reprint Softcover Good Condition Pelican Books A492.The '1066' of our music lies somewhere in the Middle Ages, when the Western tradition seems to spring, fully armed with tonality, harmony and rhythm, from the head of medieval man. It is easy to forget that musical languages had been evolving, in both the East and the West, for at least 5000 years before music in Europe began to assume the laws we are tempted to regard as perfect and unalterable. This first volume in the Pelican History of Music traces the story of music from the earliest known forms as far as the beginnings of the polyphonic period in the first half of the 15th century. A full section on non-Western music indicates how our tradition is linked with or has evolved from the forms of music prevailing in other parts of the world. 343 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
