Sappho by Sappho( Book )

8 editions published between 1958 and 2012 in English and held by 1,205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These hundred poems and fragments constitute virtually all of "Sappho" that survives and effectively bring to life the woman whom the Greeks consider to be their greatest lyric poet. Mary Barnard's translations are lean, incisive, direct - the best ever published. She has rendered the beloved poet's verses, long the bane of translators, more authentically than anyone else in English

The frogs by Aristophanes( Book )

3 editions published between 1955 and 1957 in English and held by 336 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
Lysistrata by Aristophanes( Book )

17 editions published between 1954 and 1986 in English and held by 307 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
