January 10: Where Love Lies Waiting (Vol. 8, pp. 368-372)
A tale of Greek gods and royalty behaving badly as told by Euripides in "The Bacchae." Dionysus, son of Zeus, was competing with King Pantheus of Thebes for the affections of the Theban women. Dionysus had the upper hand by bewitching the women until the king interceded. Not my cup of tea.
