Most widely held works by Aristophanes
The frogs by Aristophanes( Book )

791 editions published between 1524 and 2018 in 18 languages and held by 7,910 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among extant Greek comedies, the Frogs is unique for the light it throws on classical Greek attitudes to tragedy and to literature in general. It merits a much more extensive commentary than it has so far received, for the establishment of the text itself has rested for over a century on collations which were inadequate and inaccurate. At the same time, its most problematic passages have been the subject, in recent years, of more scholarly articles than those of any other Greek play
The birds by Aristophanes( )

219 editions published between 1824 and 2018 in 6 languages and held by 5,911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An introduction to the birds of the world and their characteristicsand behavior. Includes birds of the tropics, sea and shore, river, marsh, woods, fields, and town
Lysistrata by Aristophanes( Book )

305 editions published between 1806 and 2018 in 14 languages and held by 5,636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristophanes' comic masterpiece of war and sex remains one of the greatest plays ever written. Led by the title character, the women of the warring city-states of Greece agree to withhold sexual favours with their husbands until they agree to cease fighting. The war of the sexes that ensues makes 'Lysistrata' a comedy without peer in the history of theatre. -- Publisher's description

Ecclesiazusae by Aristophanes( Book )

254 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 13 languages and held by 1,918 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristophanes' Ecclesiazusae, probably produced in 391 BC, is a typically Aristophanic fantasy of gender inversion, obscenity and farce, the earliest surviving work in the western Utopian tradition, and the source of a blueprint for a communist society on which Plato may well have drawn in his Republic. This edition attempts to set the play, more closely than has usually been done, against the background of Athens at the time of its production, when she had just spurned what proved to be her last opportunity to escape from a war she had not the resources to fight, and to define the details of staging as precisely as the text will allow."--Jacket
The knights ; [and], Peace ; [and], the birds ; [and], the assemblywomen ; [and], Wealth by Aristophanes( Book )

256 editions published between 1730 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 1,584 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thesmophoriazusae by Aristophanes( Book )

144 editions published between 1800 and 2018 in 8 languages and held by 1,144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thesmophoriazusae is perhaps the funniest of all Aristophanes' comedies, in which gender inversion and transvestism run riot as the tragic dramatist Euripides is made to take part in a hilarious spoof on some of his own favourite plot lines, with his own life at stake as well as that of his own loyal and much-put-upon old relative. This edition offers a freshly constituted text making use of papyri published within the last few years, together with the first fully annotated English translation there has been of this play."--BOOK JACKET
Aristophanis Comoediae by Aristophanes( Book )

166 editions published between 1818 and 1988 in 8 languages and held by 1,024 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nine Greek dramas by Aeschylus( Book )

Wealth by Aristophanes( Book )

241 editions published between 1517 and 2017 in 15 languages and held by 931 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the first edition with commentary since 1907 of Aristophanes' last surviving play, in which, as so often before, an audacious and imaginative hero finds a miraculous remedy for the all-too-real ills of the contemporary world - in this case the concentration of wealth in the hands of those who don't deserve it at the expense of those who do. To achieve this he needs the aid of no less than three gods, and the play contains the fullest single surviving account of a visit to a sanctuary of the healing god Asclepius."--Jacket
Aristophanes Lysistrata by Aristophanes( Book )

47 editions published between 1927 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 830 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Aristophanes' most popular play, sex is a powerful agent of reconciliation. As war ravages ancient Greece, a band of women, led by Lysistrata, promise to deny their husbands all sex until they stop fighting. This volume of Lysistrata brings the play up to date with modern scholarship, providing an account of its history and containing new information about the comic theater and its social and political context. Lysistrata not only brims with topical references to social life, religion, and politics in classical Athens; it is also one of the best sources for information on the life of women in antiquity, offering a unique glimpse of their everyday life
