Euripides: Bakkhai

Eurpides' Bakkhai presents the inner conflict between the untamed, irrational side of man, represented by the god Dionysos, and the rational side, represented by the god Apollo. Dionysos, whose mortal mother Semele was impregnated, then incinerated by Zeus, returns to his home city of Thebes to reveal himself and to claim his rightful dominion. This ancient Greek play also foreshadows the New Testament treatment of Christ, especialy his interchange with Pilate. Originally commissioned for a London theater group, Robert Emmet Meagher's translation made its American debut at the Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, MO.


Euripides: Hekabe

Euripides' Hekabe presents a spectacle of suffering, rage, and revenge that offers compelling witness to the courage and solidarity of those who suffer the most from violence. Meagher's brilliant translation is accessible yet does not diminsh the powerful impact of this extraordinary and timeless play.


Euripides: Iphigenia at Aulis and Iphigenia in Tauris

The story of Iphigenia's sacrifice and her legendary rescue is a story for our time as much as any other. Meagher's insightful introduction and splendid translation illuminate this tale as never before, showing that the past is not past and that the darkest and brightest truths never change.


Evocation of Virgil in Tolkien's Art: Geritol for the Classics

In his Preface, Robert Morse states that both Vergil and Tolkien present myth as an aspect of an historical continuum. For these authors, myth does not seem to represent a falsehood, but rather it seems to narrate a record of experience from which humanity learns. Thus, myth is...a form of memory.
