GARCIA PEREZ, David. La tematización del mito de Ío en Prometeo encadenado. Nova tellus [online]. 2005, vol.23, n.2, pp.33-68. ISSN 0185-3058.

This article will apply thematology and mythical criticism to analyse the myth of Io in Prometheus Vinctus -a myth which has been attributed to Aeschylus himself. The aim is to demonstrate that the author of Prometheus Vinctus mixed thematic elements of the Prometheus myth with those of the Io myth to establish a new trajectory and reception for both myths. This demonstration will involve consideration of (i) the struggle between democracy and tyranny through such characters as Zeus and Prometheus, (ii) punishment as a way of achieving justice, and (iii) the course of Io’s initiation.

Keywords : ío; literatura-comparada; mitocrítica; prometeo-encadenado; tematología; tragedia.
