The Bacchae


by Euripides

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(6) Tree Line

OK, it is a Greek tragedy. There's heightened language and tons of long speeches. However, the play is also fast paced, funny, and incredibly gruesome. There's really no chance of getting bored with this amazing classic. It's a wild ride.
