Editorial Reviews

Review

Aristophanes wrote Lysistrata in 411 B.C., when Athens was enmeshed in the decades-long Peloponnesian War; it has retained its popularity as a statement against war.

-- "Washington Post"

Aristophanes' urtext for the battle of the sexes has inspired so many reimaginings and adaptations that putting them all up at the same time would probably fill a small nation-state.

-- "Chicago Tribune"

The Graces chose his soul for their abode.

-- "Plato, praise for the author" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Aristophanes was born, probably in Athens, c. 449 BC and died between 386 and 380 BC. Little is known about his life, but there is a portrait of him in Plato's Symposium. He was twice threatened with prosecution in the 420s for his outspoken attacks on the prominent politician Cleon, but in 405 he was publicly honored and crowned for promoting Athenian civic unity in The Frogs. Aristophanes had his first comedy produced when he was about twenty-one, and wrote forty plays in all. The eleven surviving plays of Aristophanes are published in the Penguin Classics series as The Birds and Other Plays, Lysistrata and Other Plays, and The Wasps/The Poet and the Women/The Frogs. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
