Book Description Createspace Independent Publishing Platform, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Aristophanes The Eleven Comedies Volume 1 With Text and Notes STUDENT STUDY EDITION CONTENTS OF THE FIRST VOLUME Translator s Foreword Authorities THE KNIGHTS - Introduction, Text and Notes THE ACHARNIANS - Introduction, Text and Notes PEACE - Introduction, Text and Notes LYSISTRATA - Introduction, Text and Notes THE CLOUDS - Introduction, Text and Notes Literally and Completely Translated from the Greek With Translator s Foreword An Introduction To Each Comedy And Elucidatory The First of Two Volumes The eleven plays, all that have come down to us out of a total of over forty staged by our author in the course of his long career, deal with the events of the day, the incidents and personages of contemporary Athenian city life, playing freely over the surface of things familiar to the audience and naturally provoking their interest and rousing their prejudices, dealing with contemporary local gossip, contemporary art and literature, and above all contemporary politics, domestic and foreign. All this farrago of miscellaneous subjects is treated in a frank, uncompromising spirit of criticism and satire, a spirit of broad fun, side-splitting laughter and reckless high spirits. Whatever lends itself to ridicule is instantly seized upon; odd, eccentric and degraded personalities are caricatured, social foibles and vices pilloried, pomposity and sententiousness in the verses of the poets, particularly the tragedians, and most particularly in Euripides--the pet aversion and constant butt of Aristophanes satire--are parodied. All is fish that comes to the Comic dramatists net, anything that will raise a laugh is fair game. It is difficult to compare the Aristophanic Comedy to any one form of modern literature, dramatic or other. It perhaps most resembles what we now call burlesque; but it had also very much in it of broad farce and comic opera, and something also (in the hits at the fashions and follies of the day with which it abounded) of the modern pantomime. But it was something more, and more important to the Athenian public than any or all of these could have been. Almost always more or less political, and sometimes intensely personal, and always with some purpose more or less important underlying its wildest vagaries and coarsest buffooneries, it supplied the place of the political journal, the literary review, the popular caricature and the party pamphlet, of our own times. It combined the attractions and influence of all these; for its grotesque masks and elaborate spectacle addressed the eye as strongly as the author s keenest witticisms did the ear of his audience.
