    By J. W. Binns

  4. Poetry and Criticism before Plato (Routledge Revivals)

    By Rosemary Harriott

    Series: Routledge Revivals

  5. Aristophanes (Routledge Revivals)

    Poet and Dramatist

    By Rosemary Harriott

    Series: Routledge Revivals

    To many people Aristophanes is the most immediately attractive and enjoyable of the Greek dramatists.

    By Michael D. Bristol
