Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hendersonandrsquo;s English translation of Lysistrata, the most popular of Aristophanes' plays, appeals to the modern reader because of its lively and imaginative plot, strong and memorable heroine, good jokes, and appeal for peace and tolerance between nations and between the sexes. Jeffrey Henderson, noted Greek scholar, puts the work in historical and cultural context in his comprehensive introduction. Suggestions for further reading, notes, and map are also included. This Focus Classical Library translation of Lysistrata has been staged numerous times.
