Minor shelfwear. Faint crease to spine. ; 9.5 x 1.75 x 6.5 Inches; 552 pages; Birds is generally recognized as one of Aristophanes' masterpieces, for its imaginative plot (it is the source of the word "Cloudcuckooland") , and its charming and original lyrics.

It also retains the notes on staging, but the metrical, textual, and ornithological problems are dealt with more summarily, and purely illustrative parallels are omitted.
