Synopsis:

In this final installment of Karl Kerényi’s tetralogy examining ancient Greek gods and heroes and their myths and cults, the tragic figure of Prometheus comes under the microscope. Through an analysis of ancient Greek depictions of Prometheus as well as an exploration of his portrayal in Romantic poetry—including that of Goethe—the author posits that Prometheus is an archetypal image of human existence, embodying as he does the transformation of suffering into the mystery of sacrifice, and seeks to discover how this primitive story was invested with a universal fate.

 En esta última entrega de la tetralogía de Karl Kerényi que examina dioses y héroes de la antigüedad griega y sus mitos y cultos, la figura trágica de Prometeo se observa minuciosamente. A través de un análisis de antiguas representaciones griegas de Prometeo así como de una exploración de sus descripciones en la poesía romántica—incluyendo la de Goethe—el autor sostiene que Prometeo es una imagen arquetípica de la existencia humana, encarnando la transformación del sufrimiento al misterio del sacrificio, y busca descubrir cómo esta historia primitiva fue investida de una fatalidad universal.

About the Author: Karl Kerènyi was a professor of classical philology and history in the universities of Pécs, Budapest, and Szeged and one of the founders of modern studies in Greek mythology. His studies include Dionysos: Archetypal Image of Indestructible Life, Gods of the Greeks, and Hermes: Guide of Souls.
