2. Dionysus, Drama, and Athens EURIPIDES, BACCHAE Prescribed Text: Dodds (Oxford, second edition, 1960) Commentaries: E. R. Dodds (Oxford, second edition, 1960). A classic commentary, though now outdated both in aspects of its general approach and in many particulars. Note that the text printed in Dodds is the old OCT edition of Gilbert Murray: in his notes, Dodds first explains Murray’s text and often then goes on to justify and explain the text he would himself choose to print. R. Seaford (Aris and Phillips 1996). Helpful, and with a facing translation, but in many passages Seaford prints a different text to Murray (= Dodds). Seaford’s controversial view that aspects of Dionysiac mystery cult are central to the play often affects his notes (e.g. that on 918-9) and sometimes his translation, e.g. he invariably overtranslates Greek teletai (‘rites’) as ‘initiations’ or ‘initiation rites/rituals’. Translations: G.S. Kirk, The Bacchae of Euripides (Englewood Cliffs, 1970; Cambridge 1979); Seaford (above); James Morwood in the Oxford World’s Classics series, Euripides: Bacchae and Other Plays (1999); John Davie in the Penguin volume Euripides: The Bacchae and Other Plays (2005), with valuable introductions and notes by Richard Rutherford; D.
