Aeschylus Prometheus Bound Shelley Prometheus Unbound

Prometheus was the Titan in Greek mythology, best known as the deity in Greek mythology who was the creator of mankind and its greatest benefactor, who gifted mankind with fire stolen from Mount Olympus. Prometheus Bound is perhaps the most famous treatment of the myth to be found among the Greek tragedies, it is traditionally attributed to the 5th-century BC Greek tragedian Aeschylus. Percy Shelley published his four-act lyrical drama titled Prometheus Unbound in 1820. His version was written in response to the version of myth as presented by Aeschylus and is oriented to the high British Idealism and high British Romanticism prevailing in Shelley's own time.
