Orestes cries out as madness overtakes him. While Racine chose to put these words in the mouth of the Greek hero, they would have been perfectly suited for Aeschylus eponymous tragedy and, in broader terms, for all of his plays. In all its forms - metaphorical, sentimental, religious, physical or even medical - fear inhabits Aeschylus characters and invades the audience. In this groundbreaking study, Jacqueline de Romilly analyses the various faces of fear in Aeschylus poetry, as well as their meaning.
