Traditionally, Greek tragedies were trilogies, with each play ending in a moment of catharsis experienced by the protagonist. Unfortunately, except for one, no complete trilogy has survived.

For any student or lover of literature, it is important to read and understand these works as they have had a large impact on modern day theatre and philosophy. For example, a lot of Shakespeare’s themes and structures were influenced by Greek tragedies, you can draw parallels to them with many of Richard Wagner’s works, and much of Immanuel Kant’s philosophy is derived from their teaching.
