The Bacchae of Euripides: A Communion Rite by Wole Soyinka

Wole Soyinka has translated―in both language and spirit―a great classic of ancient Greek theater. He does so with a poet’s ear for the cadences and rhythms of chorus and solo verse as well as a commanding dramatic use of the central social and religious myth.
