Overview

In Praise of Prometheus: Humanism and Rationalism in Aeschylean Thought by Leon Golden

This book analyzes in detail the argument that Aeschylus was a great poet whose views on religious and political thought were naive and primitive. The author cites relevant evidence to discount this theory and identifies Aeschylus as a rationalist and a humanist.

Originally published in 1966.
