Most readers nowadays encounter the plays of Aristophanes in the classroom, not the theater. Yet the father of comedy wrote his plays for the stage, not as literary texts. Many English translations of the plays were written decades ago, and in their outdated language they fail to capture the dramatic liveliness of the original comedies. Now Michael Ewans offers new and lively translations of three of Aristophanes finest plays: Lysistrata, The Womens Festival, and Frogs. While remaining faithful to the original Greek, these translations are accessible to a modern audienceand actable on stage.
