Aristophanes and Athens : an introduction to the plays by Douglas M MacDowell( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides an accessible introduction to each of Aristophanes' plays, focusing particularly on their relationship to Athenian politics and life, and to the effect that Aristophanes hoped to have on his audience. All passages quoted from them are given in new verse translations, and readers do not need any knowledge of Greek. But scholarly problems are not ignored, and specialists will find here both new suggestions and summaries of different interpretations with recent bibliographical information in the notes."--Jacket

It includes a full introduction surveying Andokides's life, trial, and literary style; a note on the basis of the text; and a detailed commentary and appendices that discuss Andokides' innocence or guilt, the chronology and political significance of events in 415 B.C., the legal revision ordered by the decree of Teisamenos, the date of the trial and speech, and aspects of the historical and stylistic background relevant to the work
