Myth, Poem, and Painting Dedicated to Prometheus

Examine the myth of Prometheus, the poem “Disconnected” by Brent Michaels, and the painting “Prometheus and the Child of Tomorrow.”

Put the three texts into conversation with one another. You do not need to focus on the texts equally, but all three should play a role in your argument. Your answer should have a clear, arguable thesis and should be supported with specific textual evidence (For the purposes of this assignment, the painting is considered a text.)
