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 Zeus – for many years – tolerates Prometheus for the sake of his gift of second-sight: for by it Prometheus can foresee the future more clearly than any of the other Olympian gods. So the Titan is useful to Zeus – and retains his freedom: for a time.

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…
