The birds by Aristophanes( Book )

7 editions published between 1906 and 1966 in English and Greek, Ancient and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tired of the unending wittering of Athenian lawmen, Euelpides and Peithetairos flee the city with their trusty feathered companions. However, their hoped-for exile begins with getting lost, and the play opens with them crowing and pecking at one another with all the fury of the most terminally bird-brained democrat. Which is when they meet 'his Hoopoeness', the once king Tereus, whom they convince to take them up to a new city, high above the base and grounded demos, burying the age-old animosity between birds and men and, ultimately, challenging the mighty Zeus for the top spot in the sky. The play is full of the most bawdy of Aristophanes' jokes, and is rife with the exasperated cynicism typical of the early satirist of the earliest democracy

Alcestis by Euripides( Book )

7 editions published between 1834 and 1952 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alcestis is one of Euripides' richest and most brilliant - as well as most controversial - plays. The woman who died to save her husband has proved to have a hold on the imagination almost as strong as the man who killed his father and married his mother. But, apart from D.J. Conacher's student text, no annotated edition in English has appeared for more than fifty years. The present work is designed to aid close reading and to serve as an introduction to the serious study of the play in its various aspects. The introduction covers the background to the story in myth and folktale, its treatment by other writers from antiquity to the present, the critical reception of Euripides' play, and its textual transmission and metres. The notes are designed in particular to help readers who have been learning Greek for a relatively short time. More advanced matter, such as discussion of textual problems, is placed in square brackets at the end of the note."--Jacket
The Meaning of freedom by Gilbert Murray( Book )

6 editions published between 1956 and 1957 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The arbitration; the Epitrepontes of Menander by Menander( Book )

6 editions published between 1945 and 1951 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Arbitration is among the most famous of Menander's plays, and belongs to his mature style. It is less farcical and vivacious than the Locks."--Cover endpaper
