Ah lives of men! When prosperous they glitter - Like a fair picture, when misfortune comes - A wet sponge at one blow has blurred the painting.
Aeschylus (c. 525/524 – c. 456/455 BC) was an ancient Greek tragedian. He is often described as the father of tragedy. Academics' knowledge of the genre begins with his work, and understanding of earlier tragedies is largely based on inferences from his surviving plays.
