9789004310902: Aristophanes and His Tragic Muse: Comedy, Tragedy and the Polis in 5th Century Athens (Mnemosyne, Supplements)

Aristophanes and His Tragic Muse considers the opposition of comedy and tragedy in 5th century Athens and its effect on the drama of Aristophanes. The study examines tragedy’s focus on necessity and a quest for meaning as a complement to a neglected but critical element in Athenian comedy, a concern with freedom and an underlying ambivalent vision of reality.

About the Author:

Stephanie Nelson, author of God and the Land: the metaphysics of farming in Hesiod and Vergil and of numerous papers on Joyce’sUlysses and the Odyssey, is Associate Professor of Classics and Director of the Core Curriculum at Boston University.

Review:

"This lengthy and detailed study takes its place as the most extensive examination to date of the interplay of tragic and comic drama in fifth-century Athens. (...) Nelson's prose flows rather well and she comes across as engaging and involved in the material and ideas. In a number of places a reader can sense the voice of an experienced teacher unpacking a complex text for her students. She has taken pains to make the volume accessible for non-specialists and motivated students, offering passages in translation (mostly without the original Greek), providing ample background and support (e.g., the glossary and synopses), and glossing technical terms so that the book is relatively light on jargon." Wilfred E. Major, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2017.02.15
