Euripides last tragedy was also his greatest masterpiece, named after its choruses of women followers of Dionysos, god not only of wine but also of transformation and theater. We will read the entire play, with attention to the meters of the speaking parts and of the choruses, and the interplay between metrical pattern and sense in each line. We will pay attention to the word order peculiar to Greek poetry as opposed to prose, and above all to the difficult and challenging word order of the choral odes. Class size: 15
