The birds by Aristophanes ( Book )
26 editions published between 1889 and 1966 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This is the first comprehensive edition in any language of the Birds, a play generally recognized as one of Aristophanes' masterpieces - both for its imaginative plot and for the charm and originality of its lyrics. The commentary gives generous help with the translation, to cater for the less advanced student of Greek, and also with interpretation and the lyric metres, as well as fully discussing the staging. It uses the resources of modern ornithology to elucidate Aristophanes' references to birds. The introduction discusses the nature of the play; its historical and mythological background; the history of the text, including the contributions of ancient scholars recorded in the scholia, which are exceptionally important in this play; and also more recent scholarship
Clouds by Aristophanes ( Book )
38 editions published between 1879 and 1965 in 5 languages and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Frogs by Aristophanes ( Book )
49 editions published between 1884 and 1963 in 4 languages and held by 307 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
