Carlos García Gual

Esquilo (525-456)

10/11/2018

Carlos García Gual, Emeritus Professor of Greek Philology at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid, describes Aeschylus (525-456 BC) as “the greatest of the tragic poets, who gave the tragedy its solemnity and force”, echoing Aristotle’s thoughts. An author noted for the depth of his philosophical and theological thought, only seven tragic poems are extant, all derived from myths with the exception of historical The Persians. In regard to this work, García Gual insists on the idea of empathy towards those defeated by the Greeks; Aeschylus himself participated in the Greek victory at Marathon (490 BC) and this circumstance would be decisive in the writing of the tragedy.
