Google full text of this book:

Through a careful rendering of the text, deciphering its hidden ironies, Mr. Weinberg sees Prométhée as a modern allegory, a parable wrought of allusions, symbols, and images drawn from classical antiquity and calvinist theology, and a multi-leveled sotie à miroirs.

Originally published in 1972.
