Includes supplemental material: • About Aeschylus, in Brief • About Sophocles, in Brief • About Euripides, in Brief • About Aristophanes, in Brief Sample passage: Sophocles marks the passage from the drama as a religious institution to the drama as a work of pure art. He made the great step in advance of adding a third speaker to the second of Aeschylus; and this was evidently essential to the full development of the dramatic ideal. The plot and the elaborate evolution of character and situation in his plays are artistically a great advance upon the simple conception of Aeschylus; and, in discarding the trilogy, he was able to make each drama a highly complex and refined study of character in action. Hence, by his contemporaries at Athens, and perhaps by the ancients, Sophocles was regarded as the perfection of the tragic poet.
