That poor guy
I feel sorry for Prometheus. I mean the guy was just trying to help out a little and for that he gets his liver perpetually eaten every day?? i mean come on Zeus we all know that you are a tough guy but its that sort of abuse really necessary? I just wrote a paper about the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and talked about how Victors ultimate achievement of knowledge is his downfall. Prometheus stole fire from the gods and gave it the humans. Victor, stole life from the gods and gave it to humans and for that, instead of having a perpetually picked liver he has to watch as his whole family is killed by his creation. such a powerful idea. If you follow too blindly in your aspirations you can end up hurting the people close to you. gives us all a lesson that we should never let our goals get in the way of the people we love. In the end, those people are all we have and you have to make an effort to hold on to them. I know it gets sappy and what not but seriously. You can take away everything i own, just don't take away the people i love and i think that translates to most peoples lives.
