    [EBOOK/EPUB] (Four Comedies LysistrataThe CongresswomenThe AcharniansThe Frogs) I was unprepared for this comedic play which seems impossibly modern and slapstick I was looking for a copy of The Frogs attributed to Aristophanes and performed 405 BC This particular edition was translated by Richard Latti who translated a popular version of the Iliad though it seems dated now This play on the other hand virtually jumps of

    Summary Four Comedies LysistrataThe CongresswomenThe AcharniansThe Frogs Aristophanes Î 4 Summary [EBOOK/EPUB] (Four Comedies LysistrataThe CongresswomenThe AcharniansThe Frogs) Douglass Parker is my favorite translator of Aristophanes; among all of the others I've read his translations are closest to the spirit of Aristophanes though not always the most accurate And 'The Frogs' is just my favorite Aristophanean comedy; to see the the three giants of Greek tragedy brought down to earth humbled and slightly humiliated is a treat Euripides gets it the worst so than Sophocles Aristophanes' favorite if he has one or

    Summary Four Comedies LysistrataThe CongresswomenThe AcharniansThe Frogs [EBOOK/EPUB] (Four Comedies LysistrataThe CongresswomenThe AcharniansThe Frogs) Only having to read Lysistrata I found this play a tad dull yet a theme shown in this play will come back time and time again throughout all histories and that is the role of women within a society The play is straightforward and all women practice abstinence until the men make peace and stop the Peloponnese War Even though Lysistrata is the voice behind the movement it is the secondary character Myrrhine's actions that lead the
