Aristophanes is the only surviving representative of Greek Old Comedy, the exuberant, satirical form of festival drama which flourished during the heyday of classical Athenian culture in the fifth century BC. His plays are characterized by extraordinary combinations of fantasy and satire, sophistication and vulgarity, formality and freedom. Birds is an escapist fantasy in which two dissatisfied Athenians, in defiance of men and gods, bring about a city of birds, the eponymous Cloudcuckooland. In Lysistrata the heroine of the play organizes a sex-strike and the wives of Athens occupy the Akropolis in an attempt to restore peace to the city. The main source of comedy in the Assembly-Women is a similar usurpation of male power as the women attempt to reform Athenian society along utopian-communist lines. Finally, Wealth is Aristophanes' last surviving comedy, in which Ploutos, the god of wealth is cured of his blindness and the remarkable social consequences of his new discrimination are exemplified

Ecclesiazusae by Aristophanes( Book )

21 editions published between 1902 and 1923 in 3 languages and held by 143 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

Five comedies of Aristophanes by Aristophanes( Book )

8 editions published between 1955 and 1985 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In addition to his immense powers for joyous farce and brillian fantasy, Aristophanes is characterized by a consummate and delicate lyrical gift, and a serious and engaged presentation of the major moral and political issues of his day -- or of any day. A comedy of Aristophanes is "a wild though highly intellectual face" (Gilbert Murray); "a dramatized debate in which the persons represent opposing principles" (S. H. Butcher)

Clouds by Aristophanes( Book )

20 editions published between 1852 and 1930 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this ancient Greek comedy, Strepsiades has a problem: his good-for-nothing son Pheidippides is gambling away his fortune on horses. Strepsiades wants to send his son to the Thinkery, an expensive school of sophisticated rhetoric, so that Pheidippides can talk his way out of Strepsiades? debts. At the Thinkery Pheidippides meets Socrates, a fast-talking sleaze ball "philosopher" who teaches his students how to con their way out of trouble. There is a famous story from antiquity that Socrates cheerfully rose from his seat in the theatre during a performance of The Clouds when foreigners in the audience began to whisper, "Who is Socrates?" Plato would later complain bitterly that this play?s mocking portrayal of Socrates contributed to his downfall
