Three Plays by Aristophanes presents Aristophanes' three women's comedies in a single volume and in unexpurgated, annotated translations. There are introductions to each play, and general introductory chapters cover Aristophanes, his theater and the women in his plays; an appendix contains relevant additional material from Aristophanes' lost comedies. Three Plays by Aristophanes will interest both readers of classical drama and students of gender studies and social history.

About the Author:

Jeffrey Henderson is Professor of Classical Studies at Boston University. He is the author of The Maculate Muse: Obscene Language in Attic Comedy and a critical edition, with commentary, of Aristophanes' Lysistrata, as well as numerous essays and articles on Aristophanes, Old Comedy and its social and historical background.

Review:

The translations of the three plays, Lysistrata, Women at the Thesmophoria, and Assemblywomen, are straightforward, reliable, and fun to read. Readers interested in women's history and gender studies will especially welcome Henderson's contribution to their fields
