Translated from the Greek by E.D.A. Morshead, with an introduction by Rex Warner, and illustrations by Michael Ayrton. In the 'Oresteia' - the only trilogy in Greek drama which survives from antiquity - Aeschylus took as his subject the bloody chain of murder and revenge within the royal family of Argos.
