6 editions published between 1967 and 1991 in Spanish and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Presento ahora a los lectores de esta ya famosa biblioteca popular un intento de versión de la comedia de Aristófanes. Intento digo, porque eso son todas las versiones, de los textos que fuere, por similares que las lenguas sean. Jamás acaba el traductor de dar el contenido del original. Y leer a éste en su lengua nativa es aun problema de comprensión, por las sutilezas que los extraños no podemos captar como las entienden los que tienen por propia esa lengua. Di la versión de toda la tragedia griega. Con fortuna nunca soñada. Al momento en que escribo se han hecho cuatro ediciones de Esquilo, cuatro de Sófocles y dos de Eurípides. Sumamos los ejemplares de todas y tenemos que se han dado a luz cincuenta mil libros accesible al estudiante y al hombre sin mucho tiempo ni grandes estudios. No por vanidad, sino por alabanza del lector doy esta noticia. Dijo un crítico que no hay nadie casi que se interese por la literatura griega. Posiblemente él no, pero el hecho de agotarse estas ediciones, con todo y la imperfección del trabajo de quien las prepara, es dato revelador. Las compran los estudiantes y los de cultura media. Ya sabemos que los sabios, o leen los originales, o no leen nada
The frogs by Aristophanes( Book )

7 editions published between 1898 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 7 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

The birds by Aristophanes( Book )

5 editions published between 1961 and 1987 in 4 languages and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike the author's other early plays, it includes no direct mention of the Peloponnesian War and there are few references to Athenian politics, and yet it was staged not long after the commencement of the Sicilian Expedition, an ambitious military campaign that had greatly increased Athenian commitment to the war effort

Knights by Aristophanes( Book )

2 editions published between 1930 and 1971 in Spanish and Greek, Ancient and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Knights' is a satire on the social and political life of classical Athens during the Peloponnesian War, focusing on Paphlagonian, a comic monstrosity responsible for almost everything that's wrong with the world, and under the guise of whom Aristophanes was targeting the pro-war populist Cleon, who had previously brought a slander prosecution against the playwright. The play relies heavily on allegory and won first prize at the Lenaia festival when it was produced in 424 BC
Birds ; Lysistrata ; Assembly-women ; Wealth by Aristophanes( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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."
