Aristophanes is the only surviving representation of Greek Old Comedy, the exuberant form of festival drama which flourished in Athens during the 5th century BC. His plays are renowned for their brilliant combination of fantasy and satire, characterized by the eponymous Cloudcuckooland of "Birds" and the remarkable extremes of female government in "Lysistrata" and "The assembly-women."

Frogs and other plays by Aristophanes( Book )

7 editions published between 1964 and 2013 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The master of ancient Greek comic drama, Aristophanes combined slapstick, humour and cheerful vulgarity with acute political observations. In The Frogs, written during the Peloponnesian War, Dionysus descends to the Underworld to bring back a poet who can help Athens in its darkest hour, and stages a great debate to help him decide between the traditional wisdom of Aeschylus and the brilliant modernity of Euripides"--Publisher website (August 2007)
