Prometheus Bound (Buckley Translation)

Aeschylus (c. 525/524 - 456/455 BC)
Translated by Theodore Alois Buckley (1825 - 1856)

"Prometheus Bound" is the only complete tragedy of the Prometheia trilogy, traditionally assumed to be the work of Aeschylus. Jupiter has turned against Prometheus for protecting mankind and has ordered him to be chained to a rock. But Prometheus is comforted by his knowledge of a way to bring about the downfall of Jupiter.
