Good evening to you all! Today I want to tell you the tale of a boy. He was not a prince or a philosopher. But he could have been someone who passes by and then builds a tower that makes us raise our eyes in amazement.

The Bacchae

By Euripedes
Translated by Emma Pauly

Here I am. Dionysus, son of Zeus, in the land of Thebes, at your service. Kadmos’ daughter Semele gave birth to me here in a scorch of lightning. Down from divinity, I have taken this mortal form, here where the Dirke and Ismenus meet.
