Summary:
Through a careful rendering of the text, deciphering its hidden ironies, Mr. Weinberg sees Prométhée as a modern allegory, a parable wrought of allusions, symbols, and images drawn from classical antiquity and calvinist theology, and a multi-leveled sotie à miroirs.Originally published in 1972.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.
