This volume brings together a group of interdisciplinary experts who demonstrate that Aeschylus' Seven Against Thebes is a text of continuing relevance and value for exploring ancient, contemporary and comparative issues of war and its attendant trauma.
The volume features contributions from an international cast of experts, as well as a conversation with a retired U.S.
Army Lt. Col., giving her perspectives on the blending of reality and fiction in Aeschylus' war tragedies and on the potential of Greek tragedy to speak to contemporary veterans.
