9780198149811: Initiating Dionysus: Ritual and Theatre in Aristophanes' Frogs

This book offers a fresh and challenging multi-disciplinary interpretation of Aristophanes' Frogs. Drawing on a wide range of literary and anthropological approaches, it seeks to explore how membership in Greek fifth-century society would have shaped one's understanding of the play, and, more specifically, of Dionysus as a dramatic figure.

About the Author:

Ismene Lada-Richards is at University of Nottingham.

Review:

`Lada-Richards should receive great praise for this detailed and extremely well-researched monograph ... Initiating Dionysus represents some of the most important scholarship on the Frogs'
The Classical Outlook, Vol.78, No.4

`Lada-Richards has now brought the Frogs out fully from the shadow of its tragic cousin.'
Mark W. Padilla, Bucknell University.

`Lada-Richards provides a powerful and long overdue appreciation of the complexity, sophistication, and importance of Aristophanes Frogs.'
Mark W. Padilla, Bucknell University.

`an important, comprehensive, theoretically sophisticated, and well-researched treatment of a single play ... a most welcome study.'
Mark W. Padilla, Bucknell University.

`This book assembles many qualities. It commands attention by its scientific rigor ... based on a courageous multidiciplinary analysis, on an impressingly wide range of literary and cultural approaches and a series of cultural and above all religious considerations that have never before been
used to clarify the text of the frogs.'
M.Delaunois, Les Etudes Classiques, University of Namur.
