Chapter 10, Prometheus the Titan Summary and Analysis

Prometheus is credited with the being the divine "father" of humanity. Prometheus is a Titan rather than a god. Hebrew and Christian theology has sometimes claimed that Prometheus was actually Lucifer. In other cases he is simply dismissed as an error. Right or wrong, according to the Greeks, Prometheus is famous and powerful as a guardian of mankind. There are times when he was punished for this role. Prometheus, in a later story, was credited with having brought the power of fire making to humanity and was punished for this or some deed like it by being chained to a wall of rock and having his liver eaten out by a bird of prey daily; since Prometheus is immortal, this doesn't kill him.
