Aeschylus
Aeschylus was a Greek dramatist and the founder of Greek tragedy. He was the earliest of the great tragic poets and the predecessor of Sophocles and Euripides. His tragedies were presented as trilogies, or groups of three, usually bound together by a common theme. Each trilogy was followed by a satyr drama or low comedy involving a mythological hero, with a chorus of satyrs. He was the first to attempt to involve the chorus directly in the action of the play and introduce a second actor. Aeschylus was bon in the city of Eleusis, near Athens in 525 BC. He fought in several battles; Marathon, Salamis, and possibly Plataea. He took several trips to Sicily and on his final visit in 480BC, he died at Gela.
