Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus

One of the greatest of the classical Greek dramas, based on the Greek legend of the Titan demi-god who, against the will of Zeus, stole fire from the gods for the benefit of man. His terrible punishment by Zeus, and his continuing defiance of Zeus in the face of that punishment, remain universal symbols of man's vulnerability in any struggle with the gods. Reprinted from a standard translation.

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.

He makes a notion with his hands and leaves to his study, his tail lashing about violently.
