Product description

In this new edition of Aeschylus' play Prometheus, the Greek text is accompanied by an introduction, an English translation and explanatory notes. In the Introduction, Podlecki discusses the background and cultural significance of the Prometheus myth, 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.

Review quote

The Introduction is worth the price of the book on its own. But the Commentary too is superb...every school and University Classics Department should purchase at least one copy."--Robert Tatam"JACT Review" (01/01/2006)
