The reader will find here not only the richness, beauty, and power which characterize the best of Maxwell Anderson's dramatic writing, but a group of lyrics notable for their clarity and appropriateness. "Maxwell Anderson has designed a story and lyrics which capture the full burden of a great tragedy. . . . Anderson faced a stupendous job in translating a tale of Negroes and whites in South Africa to terms of a libretto and lyrics. He has handled it magnificently. Interlacing fragments of straight melodrama and moving drama with songs which continuously add to the sense and momentum of the action, he has captured the full essence of the original." - Howard Barnes.

The play falls into two broad divisions: the journey of Dionysus and Xanthias to the lower world; and the poetical contest Aeschylus and Euripides. These two divisions are brought into mutual relation by the purpose of Dionysus' journey; which is to carry back to the upper world Euripides, for whose poetry he has conceived an intense passion. But after the poetical contest, he changes his mind, and decides on bringing back Aeschylus instead. Shows Aristophanes' genius to combine irreverent high spirits and serious moral concern. Text is in Greek.
