Prometheus Illbound by André Gide is a thought-provoking and introspective novel that delves deep into themes of rebellion, self-discovery, and the quest for ultimate freedom. The protagonist, Prometheus, is a complex character who defies societal norms and expectations in his pursuit of knowledge and enlightenment.

Gide's writing is both poetic and philosophical, exploring the inner workings of Prometheus's mind as he grapples with his inner demons and struggles to find his place in a world that rejects his unconventional beliefs. The novel is filled with rich symbolism and allegory, challenging readers to question their own beliefs and values.

Gide's masterful storytelling and thought-provoking narrative make this novel a must-read for fans of philosophical fiction.

Book Description:
There is a witty and absurdist character to this contemporary setting of the plight of Prometheus, in which Zeus appears as a tremendously wealthy banker, meting out gratuitous fortune. Prometheus' troubled relationship with his liver-devouring eagle provides a means of insight for those he encounters. Rather than a myth the story has the nature of a fable.
