The Bacchae

Influences

The Bacchae had an enormous impact on Roman literature. It seems to have been one of Horace's favorite tragedies.[41] The play's influence, however, has extended far beyond the Romans; dramatists and filmmakers of all ages have been greatly impacted by it. The tragedy's influence can be seen in the writings of Henrik Ibsen,[42] as well as Thomas Mann's 1912 novella Death in Venice[43] and Oliver Stone's 2004 film Alexander.[44]
