Titel: The Assembly of Women
1. April 1997 - kartoniert - 124 Seiten
The women of Athens concoct a daring scheme: penetrate the male-dominated Assembly disguised as men and vote themselves into power, after which they will overturn the old laws and inaugurate a new society where all are equal and where property and sex, too! is shared. This new translation of Aristophanes' last extant play recaptures the spirit, the bawdiness, and the brilliance of this rollicking farce, which is at the same time a profound critique of contemporary Greek customs and manners.
Known as the "Father of Comedy," Aristophanes (446-386 BCE) was an Athenian playwright and poet. Every bit as famous and respected as the Athenian dramatists, Aristophanes's plays were beloved, and had many successful performances in festivals throughout Ancient Greece. In modern times, the themes and techniques of Aristophanes have come to be known as Old Comedy. Aristophanes is the author of The Clouds, The Frogs, Lysistrata, The Birds, The Wasps, and many more.
