Epic book online Books by: Euripides, Reginald Gibbons, Peter H. Burian Regarded by many as Euripides masterpiece Bakkhai is a powerful examination of religious ecstasy and the resistance to it A call for moderation it rejects the temptation of pure reason as well as pure sensuality and is a staple of Greek tragedy representing in structure and thematics an exemplary model of the classic tragic elements br Disguised as a young holy man the god Bacchus arrives in Greece from Asia proclaiming his godhood and preaching his orgiastic religion He expects to be embraced in Thebes but the Theban king Pentheus forbids his people to worship him and tries to have him arrested Enraged Bacchus drives Pentheus mad and leads him to the mountains where Pentheus own mother Agave and the women of Thebes tear him to pieces in a Bacchic frenzy br Gibbons a prize winning poet and Segal a renowned classicist offer a skilled new translation of this central text of Greek tragedy br
