The women of Athens gather to sneak into the congress and vote the men out of office. The Congresswomen is bawdy, slapstick, and wildly funny - but it is also pointed. Aristophanes pokes fun at his own Utopian vision, but he is really concerned with the enjoyment of life. He adds to this enjoyment not only by lampooning all of society but also by reminding of the delights of love, food, and peace. - from inside cover

To Terence, "nothing human is foreign." His comedies revel in the complex relationships and amusing cross-purposes of typical "worthies" and their interfering friends. Lovers survive nerve-wracking comic trials. Young men, helped by their stoic slaves, reconcile with angry fathers and uncles. Tutors, lawyers, and middlemen--the "unworthies"--Are content to play both ends against the middle

Aristophanes and Menander : Peace, Money, the God, and Samia by Timothy J Moore( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 24 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 15 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. ... Students in schools and colleges will benefit from short introductions to each play, to Roman stage conventions, to different types of Greek and Roman comedy, and there is a
