ERRECALDE, Alejandro M.. Suddenly Last Summer by Tennessee Williams: a tribute to Euripides in the twentieth century theatre. Circe clás. mod. [online]. 2006, n.10, pp. 125-136. ISSN 1851-1724.
This study aims at approaching to one of Tennessee Williams' dramatic texts (Suddenly Last Summer) to observe every Dionysiac element used by the autor there, taken from their essential intertext: Euripides' Bacchae. The analysis of the play will propose the way in which the particular cosmovision of this American playwright gives them a new signified, transforming his new creation in a 'tribute' to one of the most important Greek tragedians.
