Prometeo encadenado (Penguin Clásicos) by Aeschylus

By Aeschylus

Los mejores libros jamás escritos El destino, el sufrimiento y el poder divino: los grandes temas de los angeles tragedia griega se reúnen en esta obra

Se cree que Esquilo escribió l. a. tragedia Prometeo encadenado como parte de una trilogía probablemente seguida de las obras perdidas Prometeo liberado y Prometeo portador del fuego. Las tres hubieran dado cuenta de l. a. historia de Prometeo, castigado por los dioses, acusado de haber robado el fuego del Olimpo y de haberlo entregado a los humanos. Esta obra relata los acontecimientos inmediatamente posteriores a los del mito, en los que el titán encadenado profetiza el derrocamiento de Zeus como rey de todos los dioses. Esquilo hace una exquisita muestra de los temas más característicos de l. a. tragedia griega y de su propia obra: el ineludible destino y el sufrimiento existencial.

El helenista y escritor Ramón Irigoyen ha preparado para esta edición un prólogo que acompaña a su traducción de los angeles obra. Además, Jordi Balló y Xavier Pérez, profesores de comunicación audiovisual en los angeles Universidad Pompeu Fabra, han escrito a cuatro manos el epílogo con el que se cierra este volumen.

«No lamentéis, pues, mis dolores de ahora,

sino que, descendiendo a tierra, mi suerte futura

escuchad, para que todo hasta el fin lo conozcáis.»
