ARISTOPHANES Playwright-comedy.(b. c455 BC). Of the 43 plays we know Aristophanes wrote, only 11 remain in their entirety. These plays are not for those easily shocked by the graphic por trayal of various parts of the male anatomy, or the sort of innuendo which would have had them rolling in the aisles back in the Golden Age and, for that matter, to this day. Aristophanes' plays are r egularly performed on stages all over the world. If you come across copies of old school texts, you will find that huge chunks have been lifted so as not to offend the eyes of the younger reader - and quite right too!

Aristophanes' eleven surviving plays tell a story of the political and social scene of the late 5th century Athens. Arostophanes' satires of statesmen, democracy and even the gods show both his ruthless choice of comedy material and also the grievances and concerns of the people of his time.
Aristophanes is particularly well known for his parody of fellow playwrights Europides and Aeschylus, and for the chaotic worlds he manages to create in comedies such as Lysistrata

Main Community Audio Links ... Articles Beginner's Guide To Limericks
by P. Robertshaw
Brief History
It is unclear when the first limerick was written. Debate has raged among exponents of the form as to what was officially a limerick in the history of verse, using examples going back as far even as 448 BC to describe its origins, with the Greek poet Aristophanes. Shakespeare has also been cited as an early exponent, in Othello (1604): And let the canikin clink, clink
And let the canakin clink
A soldier’s a man
O man’s life’s just a span
Why then let a soldier drink

However, the writer most linked with the popularisation of the limerick is Edward Lear (1812-88). He did not invent the limerick, or even use the word, but wrote 212 of them during his life. Frequently, the last line he used was the same as or similar to the first: There was a young lady from Norway
Who casually sat in a doorway When the door squashed her flat She exclaimed “What of that?” This courageous young lady from Norway
A rude version of this, as of many of Lear’s other limericks, also exists.

aristophanes (448385 BC). Of all the writers of Old Comedy , aristophanes isthe last. After Lysistrata, aristophanes seems to have given up on politics.
ARISTOPHANES (448-385 B.C.) O f all the writers of " Old Comedy ", Aristophanes is the last. Lost forever are the works of Chionides Magnes Ecphantides Cratinus Crates , and Eupolis . All these extant comedies of the fifth century B.C. belong to him. On his shoulders alone rests the reputation of an entire age of comedy. Fortunately, by most accounts Aristophanes was the greatest comic writer of his day. By the time Aristophanes began to write his comedies, democracy had already begun to sour for the Athenians . The people were increasingly demoralized by the ongoing conflicts of the Peloponnesian War and the loss of their greatest hero Pericles had been taken from them and replaced by unscrupulous politicians such as Cleon and Hyperbolus . It is little wonder, therefore, that Aristophanes laughter is tinged, even from the beginning, with tones of apprehension and grief Aristophanes' first two comedies, The Banqueters and The Babylonians have been lost. His first surviving play, The Acharnians , was written in the sixth year of the War and, coincidentally, happens to be the world's first anti-war comedy . Inspired by the suffering of the rural population of Attica , the area surrounding Athens which was exposed to continual invasions, the poet built his plot around a hard headed farmer who, tired of the hostilities, determines to make a private peace with the Spartans . Denounced as a traitor by his fellow citizens and forced to plead for his life

aristophanes (c. 448 385). One of history s greatest comedy writers, aristophanesis still a major source of inspiration to many modern writers.
(c. 448 - 385) One of history's greatest comedy writers, Aristophanes is still a major source of inspiration to many modern writers.
He was born in Athens and his fathers name was Philippos. He was well educated and is believed to have owned property on the island Aegina. His three sons, Philippos, Araros and Nikostratos, were all to be comic poets.
Aristophanes was a conservative, favoring aristocratic to democratic rule, and was against reform and novelty. He preferred philosophy and theology in opposition to the new ideas of the Sophists.
Eleven of his works have survived, but he is believed to have written over 40 plays. The three first plays he wrote were written under a pseudonym. One was The Achamians (425 BC) where he begs for an end of the war against Sparta.
The first work under his real name was The Knights (424 BC), a satire of the Athenian politician and military leader Cleon. The Clouds (423 BC) was a satire about Socrates, whose ideas, he believed, where against the interests of the state.
The Wasps (422 BC) was a satire of the justice courts, The Peace (421 BC) was another plea for peace with Sparta and The Birds (414 BC) was a satire on the Athenian fondness of litigation.

Main Page See live article Alphabetical index
Aristophanes (ca. 446 BC 385 BC ) was a Greek comic poet. The place and even the exact date of his birth are unknown, but he was probably educated in Athens . He is famous for writing comedies such as The Birds for the two Athenian festivals: the Dionysia and the Lenea. He wrote at least 30 plays, 11 of which still survive, and his plays are the only surviving examples of Greek Old Comedy. Many of his plays were political, and often satirized the well-known citizens of Athens and their conduct in the Peloponnesian War . He is known to have been prosecuted for Athenian law's equivalent of libel more than once. A famous comedy, The Frogs , was given the unprecedented honor of a second performance. He appears in Plato 's Symposium , giving a humorous mythical account of the origin of Love. The Clouds pokes fun at famous figures, notably Socrates , and may have contributed to the common misconception of the philosopher as a Sophist Lysistrata was written during the Peloponnesian War between Athens and Sparta and presents a pacifist theme in a comical manner: the women of the two states deprive their husbands of sex until they stop fighting. This play was later illustrated at length by

Editor/Translator Jeffrey Henderson Winner of the 2001 Charles J. Goodwin Award of Merit
Aristophanes (ca. 446-386 B.C. ), one of the world's greatest comic dramatists, has been admired since antiquity for his iridescent wit and beguiling fantasy, exuberant language, and brilliant satire of the social, intellectual, and political life of Athens at its height. In a new Loeb Classical Library edition of Aristophanes' plays, Jeffrey Henderson presents a freshly edited Greek text facing a lively, unexpurgated translation with full explanatory notes. The general introduction that begins Volume I brings current scholarly insights to bear on the intriguing question of the comic poet as a political force. In Acharnians a small landowner, tired of the Peloponnesian War, magically arranges a personal peace treaty and demonstrates the injustice of war in a contest with the bellicose Acharnians. Also in this volume is Knights , perhaps the most biting satire of a political figure. OTHER HARVARD BOOKS BY ARISTOPHANES

    Venom in Verse:
    Aristophanes in Modern Greece
    Gonda A. H. Van Steen
    Shopping Cart Reviews Table of Contents Aristophanes has enjoyed a conspicuous revival in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Greece. Here, Gonda Van Steen provides the first critical analysis of the role of the classical Athenian playwright in modern Greek culture, explaining how the sociopolitical "venom" of Aristophanes' verses remains relevant and appealing to modern Greek audiences. Deriding or challenging well-known figures and conservative values, Aristophanes' comedies transgress authority and continue to speak to many social groups in Greece who have found in him a witty, pointed, and accessible champion from their "native" tradition. The book addresses the broader issues reflected in the poet's revival: political and linguistic nationalism, literary and cultural authenticity versus creativity, censorship, and social strife. Van Steen's discussion ranges from attitudes toward Aristophanes before and during Greece's War of Independence in the 1820s to those during the Cold War, from feminist debates to the significance of the popular music integrated into comic revival productions, from the havoc transvestite adaptations wreaked on gender roles to the political protest symbolized by Karolos Koun's directorial choices. Crossing boundaries of classical philology, critical theory, and performance studies, the book encourages us to reassess Aristophanes' comedies as both play-acts and modern methods of communication. Van Steen uses material never before accessible in English as she proves that Aristophanes remains Greece's immortal comic genius and political voice.
