The Persians
The Suppliant Maidens
Aristotle wrote that Greek tragedy developed out of the choric dithyramb. Thespis was the first actor known to step away from the chorus and make a dramatic scene, not just tell a story but actually act it out in present time. Now the protagonist could answer the chorus in a dialog. More than one point of view could be expressed at the same time allowing the portrayal of conflict in which the Greeks excelled. In 534 BC Peisistratus, who had enacted more than one real-life drama of his own to win tyranny over Athens, sponsored the first festival with a dramatic performance by Thespis and his troupe. Solon, who had reason to question the antics of Peisistratus, once asked Thespis if he were not ashamed to be telling so many lies in public; but the actor explained there was no harm in doing so in a play. In fact I believe we shall find that many of society's conflicts and ethical issues can be portrayed on the stage to enhance people's understanding without the negative consequences.
Aeschylus was born about 525 BC. At the beginning of the fifth century BC Athens' Dionysian festival became more organized, and Aeschylus began presenting tragedies in 499 BC along with Thespis, Pratinas, Choerilus, and Phrynichus, who was fined for reminding Athenians of their grief for the defeat by the Persians in

Home Ancient Theatre Medieval Theatre 16th Century ... Email Us PEACE an introduction to the play by Aristophanes A RISTOPHANES' PEACE was brought out four years after The Acharnians (422 B.C.), when the War had already lasted ten years. The leading motive is the same as in the former playthe intense desire of the less excitable and more moderate-minded citizens for relief from the miseries of war.
"Holdsay not so, good master Hermes;
Let the man rest in peace where now he lies.
He is no longer of our world, but yours."
Here surely we have a trait of magnanimity on the author's part as admirable in its way as the wit and boldness of his former attacks had been in theirs. This article is reprinted from Aristophanes: The Eleven Comedies . Trans. Anonymous. London: The Athenian Society, 1922.

Apollonius of Tyana
Don't stir the fire with a knife.
Pythagoras Let no man by word or deed persuade you
To do or to say that which is not best for you.
Pythagoras I myself would wish neither;
but if it were necessary either to do wrong or to be wronged,
I should choose rather to be wronged than to do wrong.
Socrates in Plato, Gorgias O that Love would you and me unite in endless harmony. Aristophanes, The Acharnians
Pythagoras lived during that sixth century BC which gave so many inspired religious leaders to mankind. He was born in Samos and traveled widely. Iamblichus in his Life of Pythagoras wrote that he studied with the Syrian Pherecydes as well as Anaximander and Thales. Later he attended Pherecydes when he was dying. Pythagoras visited Epimenides and the cave of Ida on the island of Crete. He was initiated into the mysteries of Greece and those of the Chaldaeans and Magi. He entered the sacred temples of Egypt, learned the Egyptian language, and gained the secret spiritual knowledge from the priests. When he returned to his homeland of Samos, he found it under the tyranny of Polycrates. So about 531 BC when he was about forty years old, Pythagoras went to Crotona in Italy, where he developed a constitution for the city. Sybaris with about 100,000 people was perhaps the largest Greek city state then. Often in conflict with Crotona, the two cities together destroyed the town of Siris in about 530 BC.

Summary and analysis of the play by aristophanes.
THESMOPHORIAZUSAE, OR A WOMEN'S FESTIVAL A summary and analysis of the play by Aristophanes This document was originally published in The Drama: Its History, Literature and Influence on Civilization, vol. 2 . ed. Alfred Bates. London: Historical Publishing Company, 1906. pp. 24-26. The Thesmophoriazusae , which followed the Lysistrata during the reign of terror established by oligarchist conspirators, has a proper intrigue, a knot which is not untied till quite the end, and in this it possesses a great advantage. Euripides , on account of the well-known misogyny of his tragedies, is accused and sentenced to condign punishment at the festival of the Thesmophoria, at which women alone might be present. After a vain attempt to excite the effeminate poet, Agathon Aristophanes possessed a specific talent for translating the poetry of this tragedian into comedy. On the other hand, the fact that the Athenian audience should at once appreciate the parody, proves that they were perfectly familiar with the scenes and lines of Euripides. As a literary public they were unsurpassed in any age. Purchase Thesmophoriazusae FURTHER STUDIES:

The setting of the Lysistrata requires at least one door in the skene representing the Propylaea , the monumental gateway to the Athenian Acropolis . All the action of the play takes place in front of this background. An unusual aspect of the production of the Lysistrata is the use of two choruses, one of old men and the other of old women. The conflict between these two choruses forms an important part of the action of the play. In addition, there is a chorus of Spartans and a chorus of Athenians in the exodos.
Prologue - Lysistrata, Calonice (sometimes given as Cleonike), Myrrhine, Lampito (1-253)
The numbers in parentheses refer to lines in the Lysistrata. What is the dramatic purpose of the Prologue? What problem is Lysistrata concerned with (33)? What is Lysistrata's solution to this problem (124)? What will be the ultimate result if Lysistrata's solution is successful (148-154)? What does Lysistrata intend to have the women do (175-179)? The Lysistrata is set in the same year in which it was performed (411 B.C.). The play reflects the disgust with war prevalent at Athens after she had suffered the loss of the whole fleet and just about the whole army which had been sent to Sicily (413 B.C.). In addition, many of the members of the Athenian Empire had begun to revolt.

Aristophanes and the Old Comedy
from The Greek Way by Edith Hamilton
"TRUE COMEDY," said Voltaire, "is the speaking picture of the Follies and Foibles of a Nation." He had Aristophanes in mind, and no better description could be given of the Old Comedy of Athens. To read Aristophanes is in some sort like reading an Athenian comic paper. All the life of Athens is there: the politics of the day and the politicians; the war party and the anti-war party; pacifism, votes for women, free trade, fiscal reform, complaining taxpayers, educational theories, the current religious and literary talk everything, in short, that interested the average citizen. All was food for his mockery. He was the speaking picture of the follies and foibles of his day.
The mirror he holds up to the age is a different one from that held up by Socrates. To turn to the Old Comedy from Plato is a singular experience. What has become of that company of courteous gentlemen with their pleasant ways and sensitive feelings and fastidious tastes? Not a trace of them is to be found in these boisterous plays, each coarser and more riotous than the last. To place them in the audience is much more difficult than to imagine Spenser or Sir Philip Sidney listening to Pistol and Doll Tearsheet, just to the degree that Elizabeth's court was on a lower level of civilization than the circle around Pericles, and Aristophanes capable of more kinds of vulgarity and indecency than Shakespeare ever dreamed of.

Well, if he moves this this ; and if he tries to duck out this At 255-7, the Paphlagonian calls his own troops into the battle to defend him. These are, of course, the old jurors who are familiar to us from Wasps of 422, but not yet at the Lenaia of 424 to the audience of Knights . At the end of his appeal, line 257, he gives the reason for it as follows But it is very odd that he should have to explain that he is being beaten to the very people who are beating him.

ARISTOPHANES Of the great comic poet of antiquity, though he has left us a vivid picture of his own personality, of what he loved, and what he despised, we know almost nothing with any certainty. He flourished about half a century after the great epoch of Athenian glory, and has given us immortal sketches of the Republic as it hastened to its speedy decline. Of his own life we know little more than this ARISTOPHANES , the son of Philippus, was probably an Athenian, born about 444 B.C. He was a lover of pleasure and of society, and is introduced as one of the brilliant revellers in Plato's Banquet . He won a prize with his first comedy in 427 B.C., soon after the opening of the Peloponnesian war, when he was still a lad under age. He continued to exhibit comedies over a period of 40 years; it is said that he produced 54, of which 11 only survive. He left three sons, all comic poets: and he died about 380 B.C., when Athens had lost all political importance, and all her great men except Plato and his followers. Aristophanes was the unrivalled master of the Old Comedy Socrates , and masters of tenderness like Euripides . Cleon the demagogue, Euripides the sentimentalist, and Socrates the type of the critical sophist, are the constant objects of his ridicule. In all these attacks there is much that is blind, not a little that is unfair. But to an earnest conservative like the poet, Cleon embodied the follies and conceit of democracy; Euripides, the taste for morbid rhetoric in poetry; and Socrates, the Rousseauism of antiquity, which subjected every established belief to a metaphysical criticism.

The other, The Acharnians , forms the first of the three Comedies dealing directly with the War and its disastrous effects and urging the conclusion of Peace; for this reason it is better ranged along with its sequals, the Peace and the Lysistrata , and considered in conjunction with them. In many respects, The Knights may be reckoned the great Comedian's masterpiece, the direct personal attack on the then all-powerful Cleon, with its scathing satire and tremendous invective, being one of the most vigorous and startling things in literature. Already in The Archanians he had threatened to "cut up Cleon the Tanner into shoe-leather for the Knights," and he now proceeds to carry his menace into execution, "concentrating the whole force of his wit in the most unscrupulous and merciless fashion against his personal enemy." In the first-mentioned play Aristophanes had attacked and satirized the whole general policy of the democratic partyand incidentally Cleon, its leading spirit and mouthpiece since the death of
