I’ve been doing a bit of reading about some scholar’s thoughts about my story.
David Grene thought that Prometheus Bound was a symbolic play and that my conflict with Zeus represents rebel vs. tyrant and brute force vs. intellect. And this made the play relatable to common struggles of Aeschylus’s audience. Greene, D. ‘Prometheus Bound’ Classical Philology, Vol. 35, No. 1 (Jan., 1940), pp. 22-38.
Olga Raggio beleived that the way which people view my myth was transformed after the mid eighteenth century. Raggio’s provides an interesting article on the development of my myth and for those interested it’s reference is: Raggio, O. ‘The Myth of Prometheus: Its Survival and Metamorphoses up to the Eighteenth Century’ Journal of the Warburg and Courtauld Institutes, Vol. 21, No. 1/2 (Jan. - Jun., 1958), pp. 44-62.
There also other works, including commentaries, which you may be interested in regarding the various incarnations of my myth. These include:
