PROMETHEUS

By
Lord Byron


Lord Byron wrote this poem while staying  at Diodati, a villa on the shore of Lake Geneva, in 1816.    Also staying at a home nearby was Byron's friend, Percy Shelley.  Shelley wrote Prometheus Unbound a few years later.

Byron's poetic interpretation of the Greek Tragedy, Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus is one of my favorites.
