Five comedies by Aristophanes( Book )

6 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 570 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)

Knights by Aristophanes( Book )

28 editions published between 1910 and 1930 in 3 languages and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Knights' is a satire on the social and political life of classical Athens during the Peloponnesian War, focusing on Paphlagonian, a comic monstrosity responsible for almost everything that's wrong with the world, and under the guise of whom Aristophanes was targeting the pro-war populist Cleon, who had previously brought a slander prosecution against the playwright. The play relies heavily on allegory and won first prize at the Lenaia festival when it was produced in 424 BC

37 editions published between 1911 and 1996 in 5 languages and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristophanes helped shape comedy ... despite their often fantasical premises, were fairly consistently concerned with contemporary politics and social institutions. ... mildly aristocratic ... patriotic ... suspicious of social innovation ... sympathetic to the struggles of the common people ... unrestrained in insult ... exuberantly bawdy
Ecclesiazusae by Aristophanes( Book )

19 editions published between 1902 and 1923 in 3 languages and held by 131 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 birds by Aristophanes( Book )

5 editions published between 1906 and 1930 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tired of the unending wittering of Athenian lawmen, Euelpides and Peithetairos flee the city with their trusty feathered companions. However, their hoped-for exile begins with getting lost, and the play opens with them crowing and pecking at one another with all the fury of the most terminally bird-brained democrat. Which is when they meet 'his Hoopoeness', the once king Tereus, whom they convince to take them up to a new city, high above the base and grounded demos, burying the age-old animosity between birds and men and, ultimately, challenging the mighty Zeus for the top spot in the sky. The play is full of the most bawdy of Aristophanes' jokes, and is rife with the exasperated cynicism typical of the early satirist of the earliest democracy
