Hyppolytus/The Bacchae Reviews

    I just read The Bacchae to see if I wanted to audition for a part because my alma mater is doing it this summer. It was okay. I prefer Euripides when his gods action are more indirect and there is more psychological anguish in his mortal characters. The scene where Agave comes in with her prize is when it really got good. If only there had been more of that.

    I blame translation. And history.I meant so in that translating ancient greek is a thankless and hopeless task to some extent, and history has programmed us to not find the devices here new to us, as they've been copies thousands of times before our births. I suspect I'll reread these someday with better translations, but for now, I didn't enjoy them.

    I need to reread the bachea but I remember it being great. Hyppolytus I gave a quick read before I saw a production with Willem Defoe in it at act - how can you go wrong with him.

    Read The Bacchae for Greek & Roman Mythology, Coursera, 2012.This is amazing. So many layers, so much to see - I think you'd get a different idea every time you read it.
