Aeschylus was a Greek tragedian who gave his life to dramatic arts. He laid the foundation and groundwork that was required for the art to flourish in the world. While he served as the initiator, Sophocles and Euripides took over as his notable successors. Till date, the works of the trio, Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides survive and can be read or performed. Aeschylus often referred to as the father of tragedy, was truly the founder of Greek tragedy. It is through his works that the basic understanding of the earlier tragedies was developed. His plays have been serving as the point of reference till date. At the time when Aeschylus began writing, theatre was just about evolving. Plays performed then were just about choral poetry supplemented with expressive dance. Aeschylus not just worked on the genre but brought about new theme by introducing a second actor in the play in the form of chorus. In his lifetime, he is said to have written about ninety plays of which only seven survive till date. Nevertheless, these seven plays help in the basic understanding of earlier tragedies.
