Description - Aristophanes 1: Clouds, Wasps, Birds by Aristophanes

Originally adapted for the stage, Peter Meineck's revised translations achieve a level of fidelity appropriate for classroom use while managing to preserve the wit and energy that led The New Yorker to judge his Clouds "The best Greek drama we've ever seen anywhere." and The Times Literary Supplement to describe his Wasps as "Hugely enjoyable and very, very funny." A general introduction, introductions to the plays, and detailed notes on staging, history, religious practice and myth combine to make this a remarkably useful teaching text.

Buy Aristophanes 1: Clouds, Wasps, Birds by Aristophanes from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
