186 Aristophanes; David Barrett (Trans. ) ARISTOPHANES: THE WASPS, THE POET AND THE WOMEN & THE FROGS
Penguin Classics 1964 0140441522 / 9780140441529 Softcover Good+ 
First couple of pages have upper torn corners. Black marker line to back cover. ; Penguin Classics; 224 pages; The master of ancient Greek comic drama, Aristophanes combined slapstick, humour and cheerful vulgarity with acute political observations. In "The Frogs", written during the Peloponnesian War, Dionysus descends to the Underworld to bring back a poet who can help Athens in its darkest hour, and stages a great debate to help him decide between the traditional wisdom of Aeschylus and the brilliant modernity of Euripides. The clash of generations and values is also the object of Aristophanes' satire in "The Wasps", in which an old-fashioned father and his loose-living son come to blows and end up in court. And in "The Poet and the Women", Euripides, accused of misogyny persuades a relative to infiltrate an all-women festival to find out whether revenge is being plotted against him. In his introduction, David Barrett discusses the Athenian dramatic contests in which these plays first appeared, and conventions of Greek comedy - from its poetic language and the role of the Chorus to casting and costumes.

195 Aristophanes; Kenneth James Dover (Ed. ) ARISTOPHANES: FROGS Edited with Introduction and Commentary
Oxford Clarendon Press 1993 0198147732 / 9780198147732 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket 
Scholars' bookplate to inner cover else Book is fine. Dustjacket has minor shelfwear and rubbing. ; Among extant Greek comedies, the Frogs is unique for the light it throws on Classical Greek attitudes toward tragedy and literature in general. It merits a much more extensive commentary than it has so far received, and 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. In this introduction, edition, and commentary, Sir Kenneth Dover presents the relevant data, arguments, and considerations as fully as can reasonably be done in one volume. ; 9 x 1 x 6 Inches; 398 pages
