  3. A battle won with forgiveness

In Act I of Percy Bysshe Shelley's "Prometheus Unbound", the story begins with the introduction of the mentally and physically tortured Prometheus bound to a rock. The reason for his confinement is revealed to be punishment for teaching the secret of fire to humanity, and defying Jupiter's reign on mankind. Prometheus, who is an immortal Titan, desperately attempts to recall the exact words of a curse that he uttered against Jupiter. However, he learns that the words he needs must be spoken by a shade, a ghost, or a phantom of the dead in order to escape suffering at Jupiter's hands. As Prometheus's mother reveals that she too has been a victim of her son's curse, a Phantasm of Jupiter appears and repeats Prometheus's declarations against Jupiter.
