FUCK U I don't have IPA fonts installed, so I can't put the IPA pronunciation for English Maenad. I removed a rough-shod pronunciation added by someone. Maenad in English is pronounced so that Mae- rhymes with see and -nad rhymes with bad. It would be cool to have the IPA transcription for many of these articles; the roughshod transcriptions look crude and unprofessional: this is supposed to be an encyclopedia. See Wikipedia:Manual of Style (pronunciation). Alexander 007 06:25, 10 January 2006 (UTC)
Dancing off a cliff?
In the movie "Dangerous" starring Bette Davis, Franchot Tone says that The Maenads would dance off the edge of a cliff in their frezy. Is this mentioned in any of the Greek litrature? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 14:50, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
C. S. Lewis
In "Prince Caspian", Susan and Lucy are nervous about the maenads, and note that they would not feel safe around them without Aslan present. They are indeed depicted as energetic, dancing girls, but there are hints that they are more than mere dancing children. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:59, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
Maenads on TV (SPOILER BELOW)
