Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

This is the best Prometheus Bound in English. Deborah Roberts' translation is accurate, readable, and true to the original in idiom, imagery, and the combination of a high style with occasional colloquialism. The informative notes and perceptive Introduction will help readers to experience the play with heightened pleasure and understanding. --Seth L. Schein, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of California, Davis

This is an outstandingly useful edition of Prometheus Bound. The translation is both faithful and graceful, and the introduction to this difficult play is a model of clarity, intelligence, and a profound familiarity with the workings of Greek myth, Greek literature, and literature in general. --Rachel Hadas, Department of English, Rutgers University

    The Altruistic Rebel

    This is the best play I have ever read, and I have read many, and even written a few. The Greek gods/goddesses were barbaric, and it is ironic that Prometheus, who created man and stole fire for him preceded these unjust tyrants, as tradition indicated that with succeeding generations, the gods became more civilized. Hephaestus regretted his orders to chain Prometheus and drive a through his heart to the rock, but performed the instructions of Zeus anyway. Prometheus provides, here, a clear indication of Christian values, and one wonders if the Muslim/Christian/Jewish God might use Prometheus as an alias.
