Synopsis

The earliest comic drama to survive, Acharnians is a highly committed play, its message being that Athens war with the Peloponnesians can and should be ended, and that peace will mean the restoration of normal life after six years' separation of the country people from their land. First published in 1980, this scholarly edition has been continuously updated, and presents the Greek text with facing-page English translation, commentary and notes. This volume also contains the general introduction to the complete set of Aristophanes comedies in the Aris & Phillips Classical Texts series.
