9780198143956: Clouds (Clarendon Paperbacks)

This new paperback edition of Aristophanes' popular play includes the complete Greek text and extensive notes and commentary. Dover examines the two versions of the play, recounts the history of the text, and analyzes a number of problems surrounding the play's interpretation, including the Greek notion of right and wrong, the purpose of the chorus, and Aristophanes' sexual jokes.

From the Back Cover:

The career of Aristophanes as a writer of comedies lasted forty years, from 427 to c. 386. At least forty plays were attributed to him in antiquity, eleven of which survived into the Middle Ages and thus to our own day: the earliest of these eleven is Acharnians(425) and the last Wealth(388). Clouds was produced in 423, and was placed by the judges third of the three plays competing at the City Dionysia that year.

About the Author:

Kenneth Dover is at St Andrews University.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1989. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. During the second half of the fifth century BC, oratory was an essential skill for a successful politician. This art of persuasive speaking was one of several subjects which sophists, lesser philosophers (with whom Socrates was often identified), offered at a price. Aristophanes Clouds, performed in its original version in 423 BC, is a witty and merciless satire at the expense of Socrates, which ridicules features ascribed by the man in the street to Socrates and sophistic teaching. Dover s standard edition of the Clouds is now made available in paperback. In punctuating the text and writing the commentary, he has endeavoured to act as a modern producer of the play, in order to bring across the full effect of the drama to the reader. The full introduction, which covers all aspects of Aristophanes play, from the playwright himself to the manuscript tradition of the text, is followed by Dover s text and apparatus criticus. This is supplemented by a detailed and lively commentary, addenda, and indexes. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9780198143956
