Владимир vs Алеша - written expression - Прометей и Люди

www.debate.org_photos_albums_1_3_2265_32577-2265-vs7eu-a.jpg

Сохраните на английском языке сюжет, устранив авторскую стилистику отрывка.

Прометей по повелению Зевса вылепил из глины людей и животных. Но увидел Зевс, что неразумных животных получилось гораздо больше, и сказал “Почему неразумных животных получилось гораздо больше? Часть животных уничтожь и перелепи в людей”. Тот повиновался; но получилось так, что люди, переделанные из животных, получили облик человеческий, но душу сохранили зверообразную.

Zeus ordered Prometheus to make humans and animals of clay.
Prometheus made more animals than humans.
Zeus did not like this and he ordered to remake part of the animals (some animals/some part of the animals) into humans.
Prometheus made what Zeus asked to do.
However, the humans made of animals remained animals inside.

Zeus ordered Prometheus to mold(make) make/mould/mold (AmE) humans and animals of clay. But Zeus didn't like that unreasonable like it that … animals turned out much more than reasonable (The number of animals turned out to be more than humans, and Zeus did not like it). turned out to be far more reasonable than … He ordered Prometheus to remold(remake)some of them into humans. Prometheus obeyed, but it turned out that humans, who(wich) that had been remade from animals, preserved the animal souls (animal essence).
