Review by Iacobus
Rightly did the ancient Athenians regard Euripidies as a sombre misfit: <em>The Bacchae</em>, first read by me 23 years ago at university, still has power to move and disturb. A truly unsettling examination of family ties, pride, and the capricious world in which we seem to live. Atmospheric.
Review by Lukerik
If you are looking to read Euripides in English then I recommend this edition, or any edition, as long as the translator is Philip Vellacott.
