Prometheus Bound is a play about the rule of Zeus and the potential threat to his regime. By examining how Aeschylus uses different traditional versions of the story and allusions to other poets in his own writing, Dr. Sampson explored how character, plot, and misdirection come together to generate a compelling theatrical narrative.
