Read full description of the books:

The Bacchae is one of Euripides' last plays; it was discovered with two others after his death in the winter of 407/6 BC, and when subsequently staged in Athens by his son it won first prize. Few plays have been so much discussed or have been the subject of such exact and careful linguistic study. This paperback version of Dodds's classic commentary provides the reader with an invaluable introduction to the play and its subject. In the introduction to the text and commentary, Professor Dodds discusses the complex nature of the Dionysiac religion and its place at Athens, and examines traditional elements in the play, its place in Euripides' work, and the sources of the text. An appendix gives some additional fragments to the Bacchae, discovered since the publication of the first edition.

Read information about the author

Ebook Bacchae read Online! (Greek: Ευριπίδης )
Euripides (Ancient Greek: Εὐριπίδης) (ca. 480 BC–406 BC) was the last of the three great tragedians of classical Athens (the other two being Aeschylus and Sophocles). Ancient scholars thought that Euripides had written ninety-five plays, although four of those were probably written by Critias. Eighteen of Euripides' plays have survived complete. It is now widely believed that what was thought to be a nineteenth, Rhesus, was probably not by Euripides. Fragments, some substantial, of most of the other plays also survive. More of his plays have survived than those of Aeschylus and Sophocles together, partly because of the chance preservation of a manuscript that was probably part of a complete collection of his works in alphabetical order.

Reviews of the Bacchae


Now this book is one of my favorites!


This is a very predictable author. When you get a book for free, you can read it. The intrigue is present, the unbundling is clear.
