Description:

Premiered in London last year to critical acclaim, Aristophanes' classic battle of the sexes is given an up-to-the-minute plundering by the world's leading feminist raconteur, polemicist and wit. "Germaine Greer's ball-grabbing translation misses no opportunity to squeeze as fruity an interpretation as possible. A bubbling bag of Ancient Greek delights."-Rachel Halliburton, The Independent

Germaine Greer gained her PhD from the University of Cambridge in 1967 with a thesis on Shakespeare's early comedies and has taught Shakespeare at universities in Australia, Britain and the US. In 1986 she was invited to contribute the volume on Shakespeare to the prestigious Past Masters series. In 1989 she set up her own publishing imprint, Stump Cross Books, and went on to publish scholarly editions of Katherine Philips, Anne Wharton and Anne Finch, Countess of Winchilsea. She lives on three acres by a motorway exit in north-west Essex, with two dogs, thirteen geese and a fluctuating number of doves. Shakespeare's Wife has also been shortlisted for The Prime Minister's Literary Awards.
