Bakkhai (Paperback) (Anne Carson)
about this item
A powerful new translation of the Greek classic by award-winning Classics Scholar, poet, and writer Anne Carson. Pentheus has banned the wild, ritualistic worship of the god Dionysos. A stranger arrives to persuade him to change his mind. Euripides' electrifying tragedy is a struggle to the death between freedom and restraint, the rational and the irrational, man and god.
