A man-friendly Titan, and a girl with cow's horns on her head provide the cast of Prometheus Bound, possibly the oldest surviving Greek tragedy. Associate Professor of Ancient Mediterranean Studies Sandra Blakely, explores Aeschylus' use of the tortured Titan and the frenetic girl to ask perennial questions: is technology a gift? Can man evolve? Are absolute rulers absolutely awful or is there hope for a more just political system? Registration required by phone.
