Chapter Summary

The second pair of stanzas in the First Stasimon of Bacchae contains some notorious cruces and other features meriting further discussion and they form the focus of this chapter. The author further details the characteristics of each paragraph, whether bipartite or tripartite, and corrections, if applicable, for the various paragraphs. Commentaries by various writers have been correlated to arrive the meaning of each verse. The author quotes from many commentaries by writers such as Diggle and Rijksbaron. There are also many conflicts in the accounts of the commentators that are analyzed and the author points to the most plausible account. Thus, each verse is individually assessed and reconstructed with the help of commentaries written.
