ÆSCHYLUS was a warrior from his birth, and, like the author of the Araucana, he sought to immortalize himself by the description of the scenes he delighted in. His dramas are vivid paintings of wars and tumults, and the miseries attendant on them. He sketches from reality; hence the terrible truth and appalling terror of his portraits. Eschylus was the first of his race, and there is all the savage sublimity of a wild and self-relying genius apparent in his writings. He was the Ossian of Greece; his path lay in the whirlwind and the flame; he excelled in the grandeur and magnificence of his images."

"To Æschylus, who led the van in dramatic enterprise, as he did in the field of Marathon, the sanction of antiquity has ascribed unrivalled powers over the realms of astonishment and terror. At his summons, the mysterious and tremendous volume of destiny, in which are inscribed the doom of gods and men, seemed to display its leaves of iron before the appalled spectators; the more than mortal voices of Deities, Titans, and departed heroes, were heard in awful conference; heaven bowed, and its divinities descended; earth yawned, and gave up the pale spectres of the dead, and the yet more undefined and grisly forms of those infernal deities, who struck horror into the gods themselves. Aschylus led, not only the way in the noble career of the Grecian drama, but outstripped, in point of sublimity at least, those by whom he was followed."-Sir W Scott.
