The Prometheus Epic

An original epic poem by antipodeanwriter!

The Prometheus Epic retells the story of Prometheus – a Titan exile who journeys among mankind: becoming their teacher, friend, and defender against the malicious whimsies of Olympian Zeus.

Zeus has little time or patience for Prometheus.

  • Was Prometheus not a staunch supporter of the TItans’ supremacy: a confederation only overthrown after years of brutal war?
  • Are not Prometheus’ own father and brothers still confined in chains within the deepest dungeons of Tartaros for their own part in the Titans’ rebellion?

But the day comes when Prometheus refuses Zeus’ demand to reveal a certain prophecy: vouchsafed to by virtue of his second-sight. Zeus’ patience with the recalcitrant Titan finally snaps: and Prometheus discovers what a terrible thing it is to anger the most powerful god on Olympus…

The Time of Titans Epic narrates the creation of the universe out of Chaos as described by the ancient Greek myths: in which overlordship of Earth is first entrusted to the powerful Uranos. But in time Uranos is cast down by the rising Titan power: ably led and generaled by Uranos’ own son – Kronos.

Centuries pass in blissful security, but eventually a time comes when the Titan hegemony is challenged. History threatens to repeat itself as Kronos’ youngest son – Zeus – leads the younger gods in rebellion: setting up his rival power in the newly delved fortifications atop Mount Olympus.

Kronos is far from defeated – he has reigned unchallenged as Earth’s highest potentate for uncounted ages. But Kronos is troubled by fateful dreams warning of the extinction of his Titan empire: warnings he dare not ignore.

While struggling to conceal his rising apprehensions from his fellow Titans, Kronos wonders – despite himself – whether the Titan-rule will at this time be overthrown, and the governorship of the mortal worlds pass into hands other than his own…
