Excerpt from The Clouds: With Introduction and Notes Aeschylus exhibits to us a mind deeply religious, and severely earnest - awed by the judicial power of the gods and reverently submissive to their binding laws. Sophocles, with a more genial spirit, can better appreciate the harmony of human freedom and divine ordinance. The triumph of moral order over self-will is with him rather a happy result than a crushing defeat. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
