Euripides' powerful investigation of religious ecstasy and the resistance to it is an argument for moderation, rejecting the lures of pure reason as well as pure sensuality. Mr. Rudall's fresh translation of this complex classic retains the play's poetic beauty while making the dialogue accessible for today's audiences.
