Extract from the book Prometheus:

“Strike harder!” shouted Violence. “Drive the chains deep into the rock!” The solid rock rang and all the Caucasus shuddered beneath the fearful blows of the blacksmith of the gods. His hammering echoed through the world like thunder. Now Prometheus was bound to the rock with iron chains so strong that not even Hephaestus himself could break them.

Proud and erect, he endured the frightful torture to the end, and all the while his gaze was fixed upon some distant horizon, far, far away beyond the storm-tossed sea — where men lived and worked.[…]
