Cratinus, one of the lost great poets of fifth-century Athenian comedy, had a formative influence on the comic genre, including Aristophanes himself. Using a methodologically innovative approach, Emmanuela Bakola studies the surviving fragments of Cratinus' plays and offers a thorough analysis of the multifaceted art of this poet and his place in the history of comedy. Issues which she addresses include the creation of a poetic personality within a performative tradition of fierce interpoetic rivalry; the play at the boundaries of the comic genre and the interaction with satyr drama and tragedy, especially Aeschylus; stagecraft and dramaturgy; comic plot-construction and characterization; the author's reflection on his immediate political, social and intellectual context. As well as providing insight into Cratinus, her book enriches our understanding of fifth-century Athenian comedy in a dynamic evolving environment.

Review:

This is a book about which all students of ancient comedy should be excited. * Tom Hawkins, Classical Review * Our understanding of Athenian "Old Comedy" is greatly enriched by Emmanuela Bakola's 'Cratinus and the Art of Comedy' ... this is an impressively rewarding study. * Matthew Leigh, Times Literary Supplement *
