2 editions published between 1984 and 1994 in English and held by 167 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

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three Comedies features the work of three dramatic geniuses of the glorious, no-holds-barred tradition of ancient Athenian comedy. Here Aristophanes, the eight-hundred-pound gorilla of Old and Middle Comedy meets Menander, elephant in the room of New Comedy, in a match made possible by Douglass Parker--if not Athenian exactly, or even ancient, possibly the maddest chameleon ever to absorb the true colors of an ancient choral song, transpose a lost pun, or channel a venerable, giant, dung-eating cockroach for the benefit of those who couldn't be there the first time. Timothy J. Moore offers con
Five Comedies : Miles Gloriosus, Menaechmi, Bacchides, Hecyra and Adelphoe by Plautus Terence( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""This is a book worthy of high praise. ... All versions are exceedingly witty and versatile, in verse that ripples from one's lips, pulling all the punches of Plautus, the knockabout king of farce, and proving that the more polished Terence can be just as funny. Accuracy to the original has been thoroughly respected, but look at the humour in rendering Diphilius' play called Synapothnescontes as Three's a Shroud. ...
