Prometheus Vinctus (a proposito di alcune questioni interpretative ancora aperte)

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


The aim of this paper is to provide an overview on the question of the authenticity of Prometheus Vinctus in the light of the critical developments in the last decades (especially R. Bees, B. Marzullo, E. Lefèvre, M.L. West). Among other aspects, I have also examined several allusions in tragedies and comedies from the second half of the fifth century onwards, regarding some of the central themes of the play, such as the tyranny of Zeus or the progress account of the second episode, in part. in Sophocles' Women of Colchis (frr. 337, 338, 340, 341, 345 R.), Euripides' Suppliants (vv. 201-15), Aristophanes' Plutos (vv. 87-207), Moschion's Pheraioi (fr. 6 Sn.-K.). The evidence emerging from these dramatic echoes or text reuses, in addition to the already impressive list of allusions already identified by critics, reinforces the thesis of the great notoriety of this tragedy at least until the beginning of the fourth century: a drama that could hardly be considered by contemporaries as the work of an anonymous, but - without any reasonable doubt - as an Aeschylean play (regardless of the fact that it was truly by Aeschylus or not).
