Iphigenia at Aulis

By Euripedes
Translated and Adapted into English Verse by Brian Vinero

You may call me an augur or a seer / And call me to decipher when you fear / The mystery of what will lie aheadI’m Agamemnon’s extra eye.

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.
