Prometheus Bound (9780195061659) by Aeschylus. The titanic and tragic figure of Prometheus, so familiar to readers of Goethe, Shelley, or Karl Marx, continues to capture the modern imagination. In fact, a simplified image of Prometheus-an image that has little to do with the complex figure created by Aeschylus-has become more prominent and influential than the play itself.
