Bacchae, Paperback

Bacchae Paperback



[Woodruff's translation] is clear, fluent, and vigorous, well thought out, readable and forceful.

The rhythms are right, ever-present but not too insistent or obvious.

It can be spoken instead of read and so is viable as an acting version; and it keeps the lines of the plot well focused.

The Introduction offers a good survey of critical approaches.

The notes at the foot of the page are suitably brief and nonintrusive and give basic information for the non-specialist. --Charles Segal, Harvard University
