Homer. Odyssey, books I-XII by Homer( Book )

52 editions published between 1870 and 1955 in 3 languages and held by 317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tells the epic tale of Odysseus's long journey home from the Trojan War and the legendary temptations, delays, and perils he faced at every turn. Homer's classic poem features Odysseus's encounters with the beautiful nymph Calypso; the queenly but wily Circe; the Lotus-eaters, who fed his men their memory-stealing drug; the man-eating, one-eyed Cyclops; the Laestrygonian giants; the souls of the dead in Hades; the beguiling Sirens; the treacherous Scylla and Charybdis. Here, too, is the hero's faithful wife, Penelope, weaving a shroud by day and unraveling it by night, in order to thwart the numerous suitors attempting to take Odysseus's place." -- Dust jacket
The frogs by Aristophanes( Book )

54 editions published between 1884 and 1963 in 4 languages and held by 280 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
Four plays by Aristophanes( Book )

11 editions published between 1907 and 1951 in English and Undetermined and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Whether his target is the war between the sexes or his fellow playwright Euripides, Aristophanes is the most important Greek comic dramatist'and one of the greatest comic playwrights of all time. His writing'at once bawdy and delicate'brilliantly fuses serious political satire with pyrotechnical bombast, establishing the tradition of comedy as high art. His messages are as timely and relevant today as they were in ancient Greece, and his plays still provoke laughter'and thought. This volume features four celebrated masterpieces: Lysistrata, The Frogs, A Parliament of Women and Plutus (Wealth), all translated by the distinguished poet and translator Paul Roche
