The frogs by Aristophanes( Book )

30 editions published between 1881 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 40 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

Ecclesiazusae by Aristophanes( Book )

14 editions published between 1905 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 26 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 knights ; [and], Peace ; [and], the birds ; [and], the assemblywomen ; [and], Wealth by Aristophanes( Book )

15 editions published between 1901 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aristophanes is the only surviving representative of Greek Old Comedy, the exuberant, satirical form of festival drama which flourished during the heyday of classical Athenian culture in the fifth century BC. His plays are characterized by extraordinary combinations of fantasy and satire, sophistication and vulgarity, formality and freedom. Birds is an escapist fantasy in which two dissatisfied Athenians, in defiance of men and gods, bring about a city of birds, the eponymous Cloudcuckooland. In Lysistrata the heroine of the play organizes a sex-strike and the wives of Athens occupy the Akropolis in an attempt to restore peace to the city. The main source of comedy in the Assembly-Women is a similar usurpation of male power as the women attempt to reform Athenian society along utopian-communist lines. Finally, Wealth is Aristophanes' last surviving comedy, in which Ploutos, the god of wealth is cured of his blindness and the remarkable social consequences of his new discrimination are exemplified

Wealth by Aristophanes( Book )

17 editions published between 1794 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the first edition with commentary since 1907 of Aristophanes' last surviving play, in which, as so often before, an audacious and imaginative hero finds a miraculous remedy for the all-too-real ills of the contemporary world - in this case the concentration of wealth in the hands of those who don't deserve it at the expense of those who do. To achieve this he needs the aid of no less than three gods, and the play contains the fullest single surviving account of a visit to a sanctuary of the healing god Asclepius."--Jacket

9 editions published between 1950 and 1999 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 11 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
