Prometheus Illbound


Read by Peter Tucker

(4.5 stars; 4 reviews)

There is a witty and absurdist character to this contemporary setting of the plight of Prometheus, in which Zeus appears as a tremendously wealthy banker, meting out gratuitous fortune. Prometheus' troubled relationship with his liver-devouring eagle provides a means of insight for those he encounters. Rather than a myth the story has the nature of a fable.

Reviews

weirdly interesting


(5 stars)

A story questioning whether it is possible to do a gratuitous act and what the result will be . Lots of examples of causes and effects. Helps to have a knowledge of the original myth . I found it weird, thought provoking and entertaining with some nice flashes of humour. The reading is excellent.

well done
