G. Zuntz (1902-1992), "Aeschyli Prometheus," Harvard Studies in Classical Philology 95 (1993) 107-111 (at 111):
Every generation of scholars, so it seems, tends to indulge in some caprice of its own. I have seen the Yeargod come and go, and Myth and Ritual after him. Now it is the spurious Prometheus; but hardly much longer. And there is some comfort in the fact that each of these caprices has led to some improved understanding of its central subject. Thus the next generation may appreciate Prometheus better than we.
