  • Resumen
    • The scene in which the Persian King Darius is invoked by the chorus and Persian Queen has long been seen as an example of necromancy. However, an examination of the actual rite involved and the form of the choral ode reveals that the Persians are actually approaching Darius using rituals more appropriate to a god. By composing the scene in this matter, Aeschylus is taking advantage of Greek misconceptions in order to further define the Persians as "barbarians" in the play
