Further, they were produced at festivals of Dionysus where eating and drinking took place. This book explains the importance of food to comedy: it was a medium through which comedy could represent the material, social, agricultural, political, and religious worlds to the Greek city-state. Comedy was a powerful cultural commentator and the foods that it represented were resonant markers of the culture. There could be no comedy without food and wine. Related genres and artefacts are also considered. The text contains translations of hundreds of comic fragments; and it reassesses the division of comedy into Sicilian and Attic Old, Middle, and New."--Jacket." ;
