Euripides' Bacchae

An English translation of Euripides' tragedy based on the mythological story of King Pentheus of Thebes and his fateful encounter with the god DIonysus. Includes an introductory essay, extensive notes, appendices on lacuna, a geneological chart of the gods, and an essay by Valerie M. Warrior: "The Roman Bid to Control Bacchic Worship". The Focus Classical Library provides close translations with notes and essays to provide access to understanding Greek culture and the roots of contemprary thought.
