Aristophanes and Athens : an introduction to the plays by Douglas M MacDowell( Book )
13 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 732 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
