Ecclesiazusae, probably produced in 391 BC, is at once a typically Aristophanic fantasy of gender inversion, obscenity and farce, the earliest surviving work in the western Utopian tradition, and the source of a blueprint for a communist society on which Plato may well have drawn in his Republic.

Book Description Liverpool University Press, United Kingdom, 1998. Paperback. Condition: New. New ed. Language: Greek . Brand New Book. Ecclesiazusae, probably produced in 391 BC, is at once a typically Aristophanic fantasy of gender inversion, obscenity and farce, the earliest surviving work in the western Utopian tradition, and the source of a blueprint for a communist society on which Plato may well have drawn in his Republic. This edition attempts to set the play, more closely than has usually been done, against the political background at the time of its production, when Athens has just spurned what probed to be the last opportunity to escape from a war it did not have the resources to fight, and to define the details of staging as precisely as the text will allow. Text with facing translation, commentary and notes. Seller Inventory # AAW9780856687082
