Aristophanes' comic masterpiece of war and sex remains one of the greatest plays ever written. Led by the title character, the women of the warring city-states of Greece agree to withhold sexual favours with their husbands until they agree to cease fighting. The war of the sexes that ensues makes 'Lysistrata' a comedy without peer in the history of theatre. -- Publisher's description
Writing for television by Gilbert Seldes( Book )

12 editions published between 1952 and 1968 in English and Undetermined and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is intended as a guide for those who want to write for television, whether they have written for any other medium in the past or are coming in "cold" to the new field. Since the techniques of TV are unfamiliar, they have been fully described wherever they explain or illuminate the writer's problems and, in addition, a separate section on writing for production and direction (.Section II: The Conditions) has been supplied, summing up the fundamentals, to tell the writer what he needs to know about the other special crafts involved, so that he will know what the producer-director needs, and why. This is a book of craftsmanship, not inspiration; but no one who has worked in television or observed its incredible capacities can approach it without feeling that in addition to its practical opportunities it offers tremendous satisfactions and great responsibilities. It is young, it is growing and changing, it needs the kind of talent that can learn its techniques and take positive pleasure in the difficulties it presents

Aristophanes' Lysistrata by Gilbert Seldes( Book )

7 editions published between 1930 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lysistrata is a comedy by Aristophanes. Originally performed in classical Athens in 411 BCE, it is a comic account of one woman's extraordinary mission to end The Peloponnesian War. Lysistrata persuades the women of Greece to withhold sexual privileges from their husbands and lovers as a means of forcing the men to negotiate peace - a strategy, however, that inflames the battle between the sexes. The play is notable for being an early exposé of sexual relations in a male-dominated society
