A re-airing of Liv's 2019 episodes covering Euripides' Bacchae, one of his most gruesome and brilliant plays... Don't anger a god like Dionysus, even if he's your cousin. CW/TW: far too many Greek myths involve assault. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing. Sources: Bacchae, translated by Emily Wilson from The Greek Plays new translations edited by Mary Lefkowitz and James Romm, Bacchae and Other Plays translated by James Morwood, and Bakkhai translated by Anne Carson.
