The clouds by Aristophanes( Book )

572 editions published between 1521 and 2020 in 15 languages and held by 5,265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Clouds" vigorously bares the folly of the old and new morality and ends hilariously with Strepsiades thrashed by his newly educated son -- while the old god Hermes has the last word. The play is set in the Athens of the 5th century B.C., where men have forgotten the gods and turned to rhetoric and dreams. Aristophanes ridicules the degenerate old order as well as the Sophistic new. -- From publisher's description

305 editions published between 1586 and 2020 in 12 languages and held by 2,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The knights ; [and], Peace ; [and], the birds ; [and], the assemblywomen ; [and], Wealth by Aristophanes( Book )

282 editions published between 1730 and 2020 in 11 languages and held by 2,001 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Knights' is a satire on the social and political life of classical Athens during the Peloponnesian War, focusing on Paphlagonian, a comic monstrosity responsible for almost everything that's wrong with the world, and under the guise of whom Aristophanes was targeting the pro-war populist Cleon, who had previously brought a slander prosecution against the playwright. The play relies heavily on allegory and won first prize at the Lenaia festival when it was produced in 424 BC
Wealth by Aristophanes( Book )

283 editions published between 1517 and 2020 in 15 languages and held by 1,644 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is the first edition with commentary since 1907 of Aristophanes' last surviving play, in which, as so often before, an audacious and imaginative hero finds a miraculous remedy for the all-too-real ills of the contemporary world - in this case the concentration of wealth in the hands of those who don't deserve it at the expense of those who do. To achieve this he needs the aid of no less than three gods, and the play contains the fullest single surviving account of a visit to a sanctuary of the healing god Asclepius."--Jacket
Ecclesiazusae by Aristophanes( Book )

219 editions published between 1826 and 2020 in 11 languages and held by 1,622 WorldCat member 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
Aristophanis Comoediae by Aristophanes( Book )

207 editions published between 1781 and 1988 in 8 languages and held by 1,198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifteen Greek plays by Euripides( Book )

10 editions published between 1943 and 1958 in English and Italian and held by 1,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most powerful and enduring of Greek tragedies, Euripides' masterwork centers on the myth of Jason, leader of the Argonauts, who has won the dragon-guarded treasure of the Golden Fleece with the help of the sorceress Medea? whom he marries and eventually abandons. Authoritative Rex Warner translation
Nine Greek dramas by Aeschylus( Book )

24 editions published between 1909 and 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 939 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thesmophoriazusae by Aristophanes( Book )

79 editions published between 1830 and 2020 in 7 languages and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thesmophoriazusae is perhaps the funniest of all Aristophanes' comedies, in which gender inversion and transvestism run riot as the tragic dramatist Euripides is made to take part in a hilarious spoof on some of his own favourite plot lines, with his own life at stake as well as that of his own loyal and much-put-upon old relative. This edition offers a freshly constituted text making use of papyri published within the last few years, together with the first fully annotated English translation there has been of this play."--BOOK JACKET

The trials of Socrates : six classic texts( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lampooned in 406 B.C.E. in a blistering Aristophanic satire, Socrates was tried in 399 B.C.E. on a charge of corrupting the youth, convicted by a jury of about five hundred of his peers, and condemned to death. Glimpsed today through the extant writings of his contemporaries and near-contemporaries, he remains for us as compelling, enigmatic, and elusive a figure as Jesus or Buddha. Although present-day (like ancient Greek) opinion on "the real Socrates" diverges widely, six classic texts that any informed judgment of him must take into account appear together, for the first time, in this volume
