59 editions published between 1923 and 1972 in 6 languages and held by 161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frogs, in Volume IV, features a contest between the traditional Aeschylus and the modern Euripides, yielding both sparkling comedy and insight on ancient literary taste. In Assemblywomen Athenian women plot to save Athens from male misgovernance with raucously comical results. Here too is Wealth, whose gentle humor and straight forward morality made it the most popular of Aristophanes' plays from classical times to the Renaissance. Jeffrey Henderson is Professor of Classical Studies at Boston University. -- Jacket

The congresswomen (Ecclesiazusae) by Aristophanes( Book )

28 editions published between 1930 and 1997 in 4 languages and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aristophanes' Ecclesiazusae, probably produced in 391 BC, is a typically Aristophanic fantasy of gender inversion, obscenity and farce, the earliest surviving work in the western Utopian tradition, and the source of a blueprint for a communist society on which Plato may well have drawn in his Republic. This edition attempts to set the play, more closely than has usually been done, against the background of Athens at the time of its production, when she had just spurned what proved to be her last opportunity to escape from a war she had not the resources to fight, and to define the details of staging as precisely as the text will allow."--Jacket
The clouds by Aristophanes( Book )

9 editions published between 1923 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cette pièce met en scène le conflit des générations entre Philippidès et son père Strepsiade, tourne en dérision le système d'éducation des sophistes et offre un portrait déroutant de Socrate en vieux radoteur, retors, cauteleux et incompréhensible. Un complément aux hagiographies réalisées par les disciples Xénophon et Platon.--[Memento]

Wealth by Aristophanes( Book )

The story of 'Plutus' concerns Chremylus, a poor but just man, who accompanied by his body-servant Cario, consults the Delphic Oracle concerning his son, whether he ought not to be instructed in injustice and knavery and the other arts whereby worldly men acquire riches. By way of answer the god only tells him that he is to follow whomsoever he first meets upon leaving the temple, who proves to be a blind and ragged old man
