Prometheus Bound | Stasimon 3 | Summary



The Chorus then sings it is best for a person not to marry above their station in life, and best not to long to wed someone richer or nobler. They wish they may never be brought to marry one of the gods, having seen the suffering of Io, and hope not even to be seen or desired by any of the gods.


Once again the attitude of the Chorus reflects the outlook of the average citizen, hoping to maintain the status quo, get along in society, and avoid causing trouble or angering those in power. Just as an average citizen would not criticize a tyrant, the Chorus says nothing critical about Zeus's behavior or actions.
