  • DESCRIPTION

    Classical Greek drama is brought vividly to life in this series of new translations. Students are encouraged to engage with the text through detailed commentaries, including suggestions for discussion and analysis. In addition, numerous practical questions stimulate ideas on staging and encourage students to explore the play's dramatic qualities. Bacchae is suitable for students of both Classical Civilisation and Drama. Useful features include full synopsis of the play, commentary alongside translation for easy reference and a comprehensive introduction to the Greek Theatre. Bacchae is aimed primarily at A-level and undergraduate students in the UK, and college students in North America.

  • FEATURES

    • A comprehensive introduction to Greek theatre and a guide to the pronunciation of names supports readers and students with no previous knowledge of Greek drama.

    • Activities and suggestions for discussion and analysis allow easy access to the play and enhance reading.

    • Useful notes and questions encourage discussion on the themes and dramatic qualities of the text, and the more practical issues of staging and performance.
