The boy

This is one of Sannion’s recent poems, that will shortly be coming out as part of a collection in his next book. I love this. I’ve been teaching a class on the “Bacchae” recently and it summons Dionysos so well, so aptly. It summons His beauty and His terror.

  1. It’s an awesome poem.

    Question re. the Bacchae: what translation/edition would you recommend?
