Summary

Aristophanes (ca. 446-386 B.C.), one of the world's greatest comic dramatists, has been admired since antiquity for his iridescent wit and beguiling fantasy, exuberant language, and brilliant satire of the social, intellectual, and political life of Athens at its height. In a new Loeb Classical Library edition of Aristophanes' plays, Jeffrey Henderson presents a freshly edited Greek text facing a lively, unexpurgated translation with full explanatory notes.

Socrates' "Thinkery" is at the center of Clouds, which spoofs untraditional techniques for educating young men. Wasps satirizes Athenian enthusiasm for jury service and the law courts as well as the city's susceptibility to demagogues. And Peace, celebrating the end of hostilities between Athens and Sparta, is a rollicking attack on the war-makers. An introduction to each play and full explanatory notes serve as a steady guide to the playwright's topical allusions.
