Literary, Structural, and Semiotic Interpretation of Euripides' Bacchae

Work on a book-length multidisciplinary study, the Bacchae of Euripides, combining the conventional approaches of classical philology and literary criticism with insights drawn from comparative, anthropology, psychology, semiotic and linguistic theory. PI will explore in depth the paradoxical nature of Dionysus and the Dionysiac experience, and the relation of tragedy to society, of ritual to drama, and of literary fiction to moral, social, and psychological truth.
