About Book

Rachel Hadas, Rutgers University
A perfect Lysistrata for the new millennium: rich apparatus and a sparkling, metrical, accurate translation.

Book Description
This rollicking new translation of Aristophanes' comic masterpiece is rendered in blank verse for dialogue and in lyric meters and free verse for the songs. Appended commentary essays--on ancient warfare, classical Greek rationalism, Athenian women, Athenian democracy and the Athenian festivals--offer lively and informative discussions not only of Aristophanes, but of the broader fifth-century social, political, and cultural context as well.
