"One of the classical mythsthat the modern theatre has found to be most relevant to our time is that portrayed in The Bacchae of Euripides, in which Pentheus, the King of Thebes, denies the god Dionysus and is then torn limb from limb by the 'dancing women' who are the god's followers. In this play John Bowen presents the myth as a tragic story, in which a good man, attempting to perform good acts,is destroyed by his denial, both in himself and others, of what is instinc tive, in himseit and others, of what is instinctive, irrational and destructive. 'John Bowen has taken Euripides' The Bacchae, shaken it around and produced a remarkably snaKen it around?exciting play.' - 7he Guardian" from front dj flap Rubber stamp on inside front cover, else very good in lightly rubbed, unclipped dustjacket. 40.00
