Yes, this is small company, and the management team could do a much better job of facilitating orderly changes to technology and processes The work itself ranges from occasionally tedious to brag at the bar to your friends how cool it is. It's also pretty nice that the work can be traced to actually helping science and people. This place can get hectic. As I said, fires do start, sometimes big ones. When they do though, everyone keeps their calm and puts them out.

Management talks about improvements on this front, but they've been slow coming. If they actually gave everyone the time they need to focus, we'd go from good to great, and a lot of the small issues would evaporate. Come through on the promises about efficiency and time to focus, and I'll have no problem giving Prometheus 5 stars.

Unlike some reviewers, I like hearing about new clients and opportunities, so please don't stop. Some of the recent things I've heard about are actually exciting, and would keep me here for a while.

The quote of Shelley's own words describing the extent of his indebtedness to Aeschylus has been published in numerous sources publicly available.

The literary critic Harold Bloom in his book Shelley's Mythmaking expresses his high expectation of Shelley in the tradition of mythopoeic poetry.

For Bloom, Percy Shelley's relationship to the tradition of mythology in poetry "culminates in 'Prometheus'. The poem provides a complete statement of Shelley's vision.

Within the pages of his Introduction to the Chelsea House edition on Percy Shelley, Harold Bloom also identifies the six major schools of criticism opposing Shelley's idealized mythologizing version of the Prometheus myth. In sequence, the opposing schools to Shelley are given as: The Greek origins of the Prometheus myth have already discussed the Titanomachia as placing the cosmic struggle of Olympus at some point in time preceding the creation of humanity, while in the New Testament synthesis there was a strong assimilation of the prophetic tradition of the Hebrew prophets and their strongly eschatological orientation.

This contrast placed a strong emphasis within the ancient Greek consciousness as to the moral and ontological acceptance of the mythology of the Titanomachia as an accomplished mythological history, whereas for the synthesis of the New Testament narratives this placed religious consciousness within the community at the level of an anticipated eschaton not yet accomplished. Neither of these would guide Percy Shelley in his poetic retelling and reintegration of the Prometheus myth.

To the Socratic Greeks, one important aspect of the discussion of religion would correspond to the philosophical discussion of 'becoming' with respect to the New Testament syncretism rather than the ontological discussion of 'being' which was more prominent in the ancient Greek experience of mythologically oriented cult and religion. Frankenstein; or, the Modern Prometheus , written by Mary Shelley when she was 18, was published in , two years before Percy Shelley's above mentioned play.

It has endured as one of the most frequently revisited literary themes in twentieth century film and popular reception with few rivals for its sheer popularity among even established literary works of art. The primary theme is a parallel to the aspect of the Prometheus myth which concentrates on the creation of man by the Titans, transferred and made contemporary by Shelley for British audiences of her time.

The subject is that of the creation of life by a scientist, thus bestowing life through the application and technology of medical science rather than by the natural acts of reproduction. The short novel has been adapted into many films and productions ranging from the early versions with Boris Karloff to later versions featuring Kenneth Branagh.

Franz Kafka wrote a short piece on Prometheus, outlining what he saw as his perspective on four aspects of his myth:. According to the first, he was clamped to a rock in the Caucasus for betraying the secrets of the gods to men, and the gods sent eagles to feed on his liver, which was perpetually renewed.

According to the second, Prometheus, goaded by the pain of the tearing beaks, pressed himself deeper and deeper into the rock until he became one with it. According to the third, his treachery was forgotten in the course of thousands of years, forgotten by the gods, the eagles, forgotten by himself. According to the fourth, everyone grew weary of the meaningless affair.

The gods grew weary, the eagles grew weary, the wound closed wearily. There remains the inexplicable mass of rock. The legend tried to explain the inexplicable.

As it came out of a substratum of truth it had in turn to end in the inexplicable. This short piece by Kafka concerning his interest in Prometheus was supplemented by two other mythological pieces written by him. As stated by Reiner Stach, "Kafka's world was mythical in nature, with Old Testament and Jewish legends providing the templates. It was only logical even if Kafka did not state it openly that he would try his hand at the canon of antiquity, reinterpreting it and incorporating it into his own imagination in the form of allusions, as in 'The Silence of the Sirens,' 'Prometheus,' and 'Poseidon.

The Nepali poet Laxmi Prasad Devkota d. In his book, Lucifer and Prometheus , Zvi Werblowsky presented the speculatively derived Jungian construction of the character of Satan in Milton's celebrated poem Paradise Lost. Werblowsky applied his own Jungian style of interpretation to appropriate parts of the Prometheus myth for the purpose of interpreting Milton. A reprint of his book in the s by Routledge Press included an introduction to the book by Carl Jung.

Some Gnostics have been associated with identifying the theft of fire from heaven as embodied by the fall of Lucifer "the Light Bearer". Ayn Rand cited the Prometheus myth in Anthem , The Fountainhead , and Atlas Shrugged , using the mythological character as a metaphor for creative people rebelling against the confines of modern society.

The artificial chemical element promethium is named after Prometheus. Works of classical music , opera , and ballet directly or indirectly inspired by the myth of Prometheus have included renderings by some of the major composers of both the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

In this tradition, the orchestral representation of the myth has received the most sustained attention of composers. These have included the symphonic poem by Franz Liszt titled Prometheus from , among his other Symphonic Poems No.

Poem of Fire , Opus 60 , [81] also for orchestra. An adaptation of Goethe's poetic version of the myth was composed by Hugo Wolf , Prometheus Bedecke deinen Himmel, Zeus , , as part of his Goethe - lieder for voice and piano, [86] later transcribed for orchestra and voice. The science fiction fantasy film titled Prometheus by Ridley Scott is associated with the myth largely through the coincidence of name. In the film, one of the wealthy lead characters in the future spends vast sums of money in order to locate the extraterrestrials who, he believes, were responsible for the creation of man.

His hope is that if he finds his "creators", they will be able to somehow extend his life. In this belief, he is disappointed. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

It is both a strength and weakness of the library that its documentary collection centers on the early American Communist and later Trotskyist movement. We seek to acquire documents from all sides of the internal debates so as to facilitate the study of the development of party struggles with objectivity, consistent with the tradition of our forebears.

Citing Lenin, the masthead of the first issue of the American Trotskyist Militant proclaimed in The collection now includes over 7, books, pamphlets, and periodical volumes, reels of microfilmed documents and periodicals, and over linear feet of archival documents and bulletins. Particular emphasis is on minutes of leading committees and internal discussion material. Approximately three-quarters of the holdings are in English. There are significant materials in Russian: Books and pamphlets are catalogued in a card file and research is facilitated by an extensively cross-referenced digital catalogue available on this website.

The Library also contains the published works of many non-Marxist authors who strike our interest. Since , the PRL has circulated lists of recent acquisitions to interested libraries and individuals.

These circulars are available upon request. Materials cover the initial Trotskyist expulsion in , the founding of the Communist League of America and the later Workers Party, the period of entry into the Socialist Party, and the Socialist Workers Party. Substantial collection of works by James P. Cannon, founding American Communist and Trotskyist leader, including writings and speeches from the s and early s.

Books on general subjects ranging from the history and struggle of colonial masses to various idiosyncratic interests of Marxists and others. The PRL seeks to assist serious efforts to publish histories of Trotskyist sections around the world, both by providing documentation and where appropriate financial support, without regard for our particular agreement with the views of the authors.
