Zeus, the tyrant, who has just come to power, want to get life back to humans and turn them into a kind of animal.
Prometheus steals fire to give it to humans, teaches letters, numbers, the use of fire for the industry, the use of plants to cure diseases ….
Turn aware and educated human beings.
Has risen against the government and is now a victim of Zeus punished eternally suffering isolated in the world as a sign of what happens to someone who rebels against what is above.
Heiner Müller, one of the authors important and committed twentieth century, does not completely faithful translation of the Greek Aeschylus, who finally has become a version full of contradictions, fears of superb … all the feelings that humans suffer.
With our dramatic understand that the conflict is “up” and that the resolution of this conflict, as the old principle of our civilization will have consequences “Download” to where humans are, now with fire, letters, medicine … in short, consciousness.
If today appeared a Prometheus, humans would do the same as they did the gods punish him in silence.
We have to ask if it really worth having given fire or if these humans might have been worth exterminate them and return them to their state prior to culture.
