Lysistrata by Aristophanes( Book )

The congresswomen (Ecclesiazusae) by Aristophanes( Book )
11 editions published between 1967 and 1973 in English and held by 831 libraries worldwide
"Aristophanes' Ecclesiazusae, probably produced in 391 BC, is a typically Aristophanic fantasy of gender inversion, obscenity and farce, the earliest surviving work in the western Utopian tradition, and the source of a blueprint for a communist society on which Plato may well have drawn in his Republic. This edition attempts to set the play, more closely than has usually been done, against the background of Athens at the time of its production, when she had just spurned what proved to be her last opportunity to escape from a war she had not the resources to fight, and to define the details of staging as precisely as the text will allow."--Jacket

To Terence, "nothing human is foreign." His comedies revel in the complex relationships and amusing cross-purposes of typical "worthies" and their interfering friends. Lovers survive nerve-wracking comic trials. Young men, helped by their stoic slaves, reconcile with angry fathers and uncles. Tutors, lawyers, and middlemen--the "unworthies"--Are content to play both ends against the middle

Five Comedies Miles Gloriosus, Menaechmi, Bacchides, Hecyra and Adelphoe by Plautus Terence( file )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
""This is a book worthy of high praise. ... All versions are exceedingly witty and versatile, in verse that ripples from one's lips, pulling all the punches of Plautus, the knockabout king of farce, and proving that the more polished Terence can be just as funny. Accuracy to the original has been thoroughly respected, but look at the humour in rendering Diphilius' play called Synapothnescontes as Three's a Shroud. ... Students in schools and colleges will benefit from short introductions to each play, to Roman stage conventions, to different types of Greek and Roman comedy, and there is a
Aristophanes and Menander Peace, Money, the God, and Samia by Timothy J Moore( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Three Comedies features the work of three dramatic geniuses of the glorious, no-holds-barred tradition of ancient Athenian comedy. Here Aristophanes, the eight-hundred-pound gorilla of Old and Middle Comedy meets Menander, elephant in the room of New Comedy, in a match made possible by Douglass Parker--if not Athenian exactly, or even ancient, possibly the maddest chameleon ever to absorb the true colors of an ancient choral song, transpose a lost pun, or channel a venerable, giant, dung-eating cockroach for the benefit of those who couldn't be there the first time.
