About The Book
This volume brings together the four most acclaimed comedies of Greek playwright Aristophanes. The darker comedy of The Clouds satirizes Athenian philosophers — Socrates in particular — and reflects the uncertainties of a generation in which all traditional religious and ethical beliefs were being challenged. The Birds takes place in a flawed utopia, with man’s eternal flaws observed from up above. In Lysistrata a band of women use sex’s manipulative power in order to try and end a war. In The Frogs, the god Dionysus visits the underworld, consulting the late Aeschylus and Euripides regarding whether or not classical Athens will ever have another great dramatist — and provoking an argument between both.
Three of the leading Greek translators of the twentieth century — William Arrowsmith, Richmond Lattimore, and Douglas Parker — have created versions of the comedies that are at once contemporary, historically accurate, and funny. Also included are introductions to each play that describe the historical and literary background of the work.
