Aristophanes of Athens (ca. 446-386 BC), one of the world’s greatest comic dramatists, wrote at least forty plays, of which eleven have survived complete.The general introduction that begins Volume I reviews Aristophanes’ career and brings current scholarly insights to bear on the intriguing question of the comic poet as a political force. In Acharnians a small landowner, tired of the Peloponnesian War, magically arranges a personal peace treaty and, borrowing a disguise from Euripides, demonstrates the injustice of the war in a contest with the bellicose Acharnians. Also in this volume is Knights, perhaps the most biting satire of a political figure (Cleon) ever written.
