An Introductory Note to Euripides' Bacchae [This introductory note has been prepared by Ian Johnston of Malaspina University-College, Nanaimo, British Columbia, for students in search of a brief general interpretative introduction to The Bacchae. For comments and questions please contact Ian Johnston. For a direct link to a new translation of the play, click on The Bacchae This text is in the public domain and may be used, in whole or in part, by anyone, without permission and without charge, provided the source is acknowledgedreleased November 2001. This text was last revised on November 25, 2001] Introduction Euripides' Bacchae , the last extant classical Greek tragedy, has for a long time been the focus of an intense interpretative argument, probably more so than any other Greek tragedy (especially in the wide range of very different interpretations the play). In this necessarily brief introduction, I wish to sketch out some details of the source of this disagreement and review some of the more common interpretative possibilities. In the course of this discussion, my own preferences will be clear enough, but I hope to do justice to some viewpoints with which I disagree. Some Obvious Initial Points To start with, let me review some of the more obvious and important facts of the play, things about which we are unlikely to disagree and which any interpretation is going to have to take into account. After this quick and brief review of the salient points, I'll address some of the ways people have sought to interpret them.

Coleridge Dramatis Personae APHRODITE HIPPOLYTUS, bastard son of THESEUS ATTENDANTS OF HIPPOLYTUS CHORUS OF TROEZENIAN WOMEN NURSE OF PHAEDRA PHAEDRA, wife of THESEUS THESEUS MESSENGER Scene Before the royal palace at Troezen. There is a statue of APHRODITE on one side; on the other, a statue of ARTEMIS. There is an altar before each image. The goddess APHRODITE appears alone. APHRODITE Wide o'er man my realm extends, and proud the name that I, the goddess Cypris, bear, both in heaven's courts and 'mongst all those who dwell within the limits of the sea and the bounds of Atlas, beholding the sun-god's light; those that respect my power I advance to honour, but bring to ruin all who vaunt themselves at me.

HIPPOLYTUS A summary and analysis of the play by Euripides This document was originally published in The Drama: Its History, Literature and Influence on Civilization, vol. 1 . ed. Alfred Bates. London: Historical Publishing Company, 1906. pp. 70-78. Of the extant plays of Euripides , the Hippolytus The theme of the following chorus is similar to one quoted from the Medea
O love! O love! whose shafts of fire
Invade the soul with sweet surprise,
Through the soft dews of young desire
Trembling in beauty's azure eyes!
Condemn not me the pangs to share
Thy too impassioned votaries bear,
That on the mind their stamp impress,
Indelible and measureless.
For not the sun's descending dart,
Nor yet the lightning brand of Jove,
Falls like the shaft that strikes the heart,
Thrown by the mightier hand of love.
Oh! vainly, where by Letrian plains,
Tow'rd Dian's dome Alpheus bends

30. Hippolytus
A synopsis of the play by euripides.
Home Theatre Links Advertise Here Email Us Hippolytus A synopsis of the play by Euripides This article was originally published in Minute History of the Drama For some months past, Phaedra, beloved wife of Theseus, has hidden in her inmost heart a secret passion for the manly Hippolytus. Through unsatiated desire and secret shame she has wasted away until her old nurse despairs of her life. Finally, after much coaxing, the old nurse learns her secret. On pretense of making a love-philter that will cure Phaedra of her unholy love, the nurse confesses her mistress' secret to Hippolytus. The latter in anger scorns and upbraids Phaedra. Only his oath of secrecy given to the nurse, he admits, keeps him from confessing his step-mother's shame to the King as soon as His Majesty returns. Phaedra, in her half-crazed state, scarcely heeds him. She sees honor gone and her life ruined through her old servant's mistaken kindness, for she really believes that Hippolytus means to tell the King. In despair she hangs herself. Before the dread deed, however, she has written on her tablet, sealed with a royal seal, the charge that Hippolytus has dishonored her. On the King's arrival the first thing he notes is the tablet fastened to his dead wife's wrist. Grief-stricken, he opens it believing that it will contain some final directions for the care of their children, only to be shocked by the terrible accusation against Hippolytus.

Biography of Euripides (480? BCE-406? BCE)
He was not a consistent or tidy artist. His plays sometimes suffer from weak structure, overpacked plots, and a wandering focus. But discomfort with his medium can also be seen as one of Euripides' great strengths. And sometimes, his innovation and uniqueness are mistaken for weaknesses. His Orestes can be seen as a brilliant anti-tragedy, a work that questions the aesthetic assumptions of Greek drama. But for the unimaginative reader who uses pat theories to evaluate Greek tragedy, it is far easier to dismiss the play as simply bad. Like Orestes , many of Euripides' plays have suffered at the hands of critics incapable of understanding his vision. He was undoubtedly the bad boy of Greek tragedy, and he is modern in a way that Aeschylus and Sophocles are not. The vision of Aeschylus' Oresteia , though brilliant and beautiful, can seem more like a hopeful dream than a representation of the world we know. And to modern audiences, Sophocles' heroes often seem removed from flesh-and-blood men and women. But Euripides' characters are always immediately recognizable. He is the father of the psychological drama, and he is an acute observer of human nature. Using the myths of Greece as his source, he transformed epic heroes into men of flesh and blood. Sophocles supposedly said that while he himself depicted men as they ought to be, Euripides depicted them as they really are.

HIPPOLYTUS A monologue from the play by Euripides NOTE: This monologue is reprinted from The Plays of Euripides in English, vol. ii
NURSE: O queen, at first, an instantaneous shock,
I, from the history of thy woes, received:
Now am I sensible my fears were groundless.
But frequently the second thoughts of man
Are more discreet; for there is nothing strange
Nought, in thy sufferings, foreign to the course
Of nature: thee the goddess in her rage
Invades. Thou lov'st. And why should this surprise?
Many as well as thee have done the same.
Art thou resolved to cast thy life away
Because thou lov'st? How wretched were the state
Of those who love, and shall hereafter love,
If death must thence ensue! For though too strong
To be withstood, when she with all her might
Assails us, Venus gently visits those
Who yield; but if she light on one who soars
With proud and overweening views too high,
As thou mayst well conceive, to utter scorn
Such she exposes; through the boundless tracts
Of air she glides, and reigns 'midst ocean's waves:

Euripides' apology to Helen for all the nasty things he wrote about her in his other plays. Helen here is as charming, beautiful and witty as she is in the Odyssey - the centre of this puzzling play. I'm not even going to try assigning the play to a definite genre. It is obvious that it is not a tragedy like Bacchae or Hippolytus ; of Euripides' other plays it's perhaps nearest in style to Ion . A situation is set up which we are led to expect will lead to tragedy - but thanks to an amazing plot twist, all turns out well. Shakespeare wrote similar dramas, which he was allowed to call comedies - Much Ado, All's Well, Measure for Measure - but we obviously can't call Helen or Ion "comedies" in a Greek context. The play takes Stesichorus' notion that the Helen who went to Troy wasn't the real thing: she was spirited off by the gods to sit out the war in Egypt. In Electra Read Helen online
Euripides' final word on the Theban story. A mighty play which seamlessly weaves together the plots of the Seven Against Thebes and Antigone, with some of OT and OC thrown in for good measure. The first time I saw it (at the Greenwich Theatre in London in the early seventies, with Siobhan McKenna absolutely definitive as Jocasta), it was an experience that a Classicist hardly ever gets at a Greek play: genuine shock and wonder at the twists of the plot. I gasped in complete amazement when it was revealed that old Oedipus was still actually alive inside the palace! The "Phoenician Women" of the title are some young girls en route from home in Syria to Delphi - they've been trapped in Thebes by the war, and have discovered their ancient kinship with the Thebans, through Cadmus, founder of Thebes, who came originally from Phoenicia.

An original painting by Franz Stuck
The Medea "I am the mother of your children. Whither can I fly, since all Greece hates the barbarian?" "It is not you," answers Jason, "who once saved me, but love, and you have had from me more than you gave. I have brought you from a barbarous land to Greece, and in Greece you are esteemed for your wisdom. And without fame of what avail is treasure or even the gifts of the Muses? Moreover, it is not for love that I have promised to marry the princess, but to win wealth and power for myself and for my sons. Neither do I wish to send you away in need; take as ample a provision as you like, and I will recommend you to the care of my friends." She refuses with scorn his base gifts, "Marry the maid if thou wilt; perchance full soon thou mayst rue thy nuptials."

MEDEA: O my sons!
My sons! ye have a city and a house
Where, leaving hapless me behind, without
A mother ye for ever shall reside.
But I to other realms an exile go,
Ere any help from you I could derive,
Or see you blest; the hymeneal pomp,
The bride, the genial couch, for you adorn,
And in these hands the kindled torch sustain.
How wretched am I through my own perverseness!
You, O my sons, I then in vain have nurtured,
In vain have toiled, and, wasted with fatigue,
Suffered the pregnant matron's grievous throes.
On you, in my afflictions, many hopes
I founded erst: that ye with pious care
Would foster my old age, and on the bier
Extend me after deathmuch envied lot
Of mortals; but these pleasing anxious thoughts
Are vanished now; for, losing you, a life
Of bitterness and anguish shall I lead.
But as for you, my sons, with those dear eyes
Fated no more your mother to behold

37. The Bacchae
Summary and analysis of the play by euripides.
The Bacchae A summary and analysis of the play by Euripides In the Bacchae , Pentheus, king of Thebes, seeks to put down the new worship of Dionysus, which is turning the heads of his female subjects. The offended god persuades him to dress himself in the garb of a Bacchante, that he may pry into the sacred mysteries. Then, disguised as a stranger, he leads him to the mountains, and placing him on the topmost branch of a tall pine, delivers him into the hands of the Maenads, the female devotees of Bacchus, who tear him limb from limb. A slave, who had accompanied the king, thus in part tells the story:
A voice,
The voice of Dionysus, seemingly,
Was heard from heaven: "Lo, I have brought," he said,
"Maidens, the man who mocks at you and me
And at my mysteries; take your revenge."
Thus as he spake, he made o'er earth and sky
To spread a fiery blaze of awful light.
Silence was in the heavens, in the green glen

Enter DIONYSUS. DIONYSUS Lo! I am come to this land of Thebes, Dionysus' the son of Zeus, of whom on a day Semele, the daughter of Cadmus, was delivered by a flash of lightning. I have put off the god and taken human shape, and so present myself at Dirce's springs and the waters of Ismenus. Yonder I see my mother's monument where the bolt slew her nigh her house, and there are the ruins of her home smouldering with the heavenly flame that blazeth still-Hera's deathless outrage on my mother. To Cadmus all praise I offer, because he keeps this spot hallowed, his daughter's precinct

A monologue from the play by euripides.
THE BACCHAE A monologue from the play by Euripides NOTE: This monologue is reprinted from The Plays of Euripides in English, vol. ii
TIRESIAS: 'Tis easy to be eloquent, for him
That's skilled in speech, and hath a stirring theme.
Thou hast the flowing tongue as of a wise man,
But there's no wisdom in thy fluent words;
For the bold demagogue, powerful in speech,
Is but a dangerous citizen lacking sense.
This the new deity thou laugh'st to scorn,
I may not say how mighty he will be
Throughout all Hellas. Youth! there are two things
Man's primal need, Demeter, the boon Goddess
(Or rather will ye call her Mother Earth?),
With solid food maintains the race of man.
He, on the other hand, the son of Semele,
Found out the grape's rich juice, and taught us mortals
That which beguiles the miserable of mankind
Of sorrow, when they quaff the vine's rich stream.
Sleep too, and drowsy oblivion of care
He gives, all-healing medicine of our woes.
He 'mong the gods is worshipped a great god,
Author confessed to man of such rich blessings
Him dost thou love to scorn, as in Jove's thigh
