Pageturners

Engage in stimulating conversation about the classics, exchange perspectives about characters and plot, and get to know your neighbors.

Read Persians by Aeschylus. Aeschylus (525-456 BC) brought a new grandeur and epic sweep to the drama of classical Athens, raising it to the status of high art. In Persians, Aeschylus depicts the final defeat of Persia in the battle of Salamis, through the eyes of the Persian court of King Xerxes, becoming a tragic lesson in tyranny.
