Prometheus Bound Journal

To start off, this story was somewhat hard for me to understand and wrap my head around. I think this is because it was so long ago, around 700 B.C and I think that is why I did not really understand some of the language said or the context of what was being said. This book was really eye opening though because I have never read a book like this one, I think it was interesting the way the poems were incorporated into the story.
