Book summary

In his Prometheus Bound, the ancient Greek playwright Aeschylus presents the dramatic conflict between the free spirit of human progress and the limitations set by divine law. Prometheus was chained to a mountain, sentenced to endure a hideous and eternal torture for wresting fire from the gods to bring it to earth. His story has become a universal symbol for human strength of character, achievement, and enlightenment. Roche's translation captures the force, the beauty and the nobility of the original play.

Roche's moving translation of Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound (3rd reprint of the 1962 edition) is enhanced by:
- Introduction setting the literary and historical context of the play.
- Notes on Production
- An Informal Survey on the Greek Theater
- Glossary of Names and Places
- 10 original illustrations by Kapheim
