An analysis of Greek writing.

This paper discusses Hesiod’s `Works and Days` and the work of `Aeschylus’; `Prometheus Bound`, looking at certain key elements within the works as to whether the might of Zeus is right or whether the way he treated the God Prometheus was just or unjust.
“Within the history of the Ancient Greek World three writers have taken the fore front in bring the history and mythology of the Ancient world to knowledge of man, these are Homer, Hesiod and Aeschylus. Although Homers works are probably the most famous, that is the Illiad as it recounts the glorious battle of Troy as the men of Greece fought the Trojans over the beautiful Helen and the follow on story of the homeward journey of Odysseus as he left the battle of Troy in the Odyssey.”
