What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Chris: “Think twice before you take on the gods.  Don’t think twice about reading this play.  A story that is timeless and terrifying.”

Ethan: “Aeschylus’s Prometheus Bound tells one of the most alluded to myths from the Greek tradition. Whether it be the Alien movie series or Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein students will greatly benefit from reading this early telling of the story.”
