27 editions published between 1910 and 1930 in 3 languages and held by 178 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

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
Five comedies of Aristophanes by Aristophanes( Book )

8 editions published between 1955 and 1985 in English and held by 116 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
