  4. Aristophanes (Routledge Revivals)

    Poet and Dramatist

    By Rosemary Harriott

    Aristophanes and Women, first published in 1993, investigates the workings of the great Athenian comedian’s ‘women plays’ in an attempt to discern why they were in fact probably quite funny to their original audiences. It is argued that modern students, scholars, and dramatists need to consider...
