About this title


The first in a planned series, this is the biography of the strangely powerful wine-god Bacchus - seducer, magician and merrymaker. Sprung at birth from the thigh of Zeus, he is best remembered for his gift of wine to humanity. With it he brought both pleasure and the savagery of Bacchic frenzy.

About the Author:

Andrew Dalby, an ancient historian by training, writes on the history of food and the history of languages. His books include Language in Danger, Dangerous Tastes: The Story of Spices, and Empire of Pleasures: Luxury and Indulgence in the Roman World.
