Provides a well-based modern Greek text of this play, traditionally ascribed to Aeschylus, and a readable English translation, with explanatory notes. The background and cultural significance of the Prometheus myth is discussed, together with illustrative material from ancient Greek art. An attempt is made to assess the influence of the story upon later European literature and thought, with a side-glance at equivalent myths in other, non-European cultures.
