Format: Hardcover
I read the work in close conjunction with the Greek text, and I can tell you that Henderson is far and away an excellent translator. His English is readable but 'Greek,' subtly precise, and (most importantly) still funny. His introductions were also very effective--brief, as a Loeb should be, but thorough, to the benefit of the reader. If you're looking for a translation of any play by Aristophanes, I suggest Henderson as your first choice.

I got this for my daughter (16). She says it was good and translated in a way that was easier to enjoy than the books that other students in her class used.

Very nice translations and Oh! it is a glory to be able to read the old Greek documents as I had to learn 40 or more years ago. I love them. And who doesn't love an anti-war play (Lysistrata) with lots of sexual connotations for fun!
