Study Guide For Aristophanes' Lysistrata
To help with the usual barrage of people, places and things, use the Glossary which begins on page 599. The plot is about as simple as it gets: Athenian women, fed up with the Peloponnesian War, barricade themselves in the Acropolis and go on a sex strike to force their husbands to vote for peace with Sparta. This plot demonstrates that the overriding mode of Aristophanic comedy is fantasy. In the Congresswomen women take over the assembly to save Athens from corrupt politicians. So consider that, while in tragedy assertive women cause catastrophe, in comedy they bring joy and harmony. But Aristophanes is not content to turn the tables and present purely virtuous women and venal men; consider why, exactly, they are so upset about the duration of the war. To paraphrase Freud, what do these women really want? Note in the first scene how difficult Lysistrata finds it to interest other women in her plan. Part of the original humorous effect derives from Greek staging practice. Remember that all the actors are male. Also, a prominent part of the comic costume was a large leather phallus. The male characters in this play would walk around the stage with huge erections. This is not a comedy that for prudes. Most of the sexual innuendo that you see in virtually every line is actually there. The name of the play's heroine, Lysistrata, means "releaser of war," which typifies the Aristophanic tendency for an "outsider" hero whose indicates his or her function. Interestingly, there was an important priestess in Athens at that time whose name, Lysimache, meant "releaser of the battle." However, it is impossible to say this significance of this possible coincidence. Think about the character of Lysistrata and how the audience might have viewed her. What figure in mythology or tragedy does she most resemble?

aus Wikipedia, der freien Enzyklopädie Aristophanes war ein griechischer Satiriker und Komödiendichter (* um 445 v. Chr. in Athen 385 v. Chr. ebenfalls in Athen). Aristophanes verfasste 44 Theaterstücke , von denen 11 erhalten sind. In seinen Stücken nimmt er stets Bezug zu aktuellen Ereignissen und Personen. Dabei persifliert er teilweise Stilmittel anderer Dichter, bspw. des Euripides
  • "Plutos", ca. 388 "Die Ekklesiazusen" ("Frauen in der Volksversammlung"), ca. 391 v. Chr. "Die Frösche", 405, 1. Preis bei den Lenäen "Die Thesmophoriazusen", 411 "Lysistrate", 411 "Die Vögel" (Ornithes), 414, 2. Preis bei den Dionysien
In diesem Stück beschreibt Aristophanes die Schaffung eines Staates durch die Vögel, der in direkter Konkurrenz zu den Göttern steht. Dadurch, dass die Stadt der Vögel ( Wolkenkuckucksheim ) zwischen Erde und Himmel liegt, kommt kein Opferrauch mehr zu den Göttern, und die Vögel streben die Herrschaft an. Bald machen sich jedoch auch in der Vogelstadt bei den Mächtigen die gleichen Symptome wie auf der Erde breit, und das Experiment scheitert.

THAW and the Lysistrata Project's Anti-War Fare
Aristophanes vs. Rumsfeld
by Anya Kamenetz
The mood is set with wild costumes and outlandish puppets; blood and gore and baby carriages; music, singing, and dancing. Impassioned speeches ring out over rapt crowds. The modern large-scale political rally, the major manifestation of the growing movement against war on Iraq, employs nearly all the arts of theater. On March 2 and 3, thousands of artists will extend the show by making theater in the service of protest: On Sunday, over 100 theaters in New York will take action as THAW - Theaters Against War; the next day, over 600 groups across the country and the world are scheduled to present Aristophanes' 2500-year-old anti-war play, Lysistrata.
The organizers behind these efforts started without grand designs. "It was literally in my living room," says Anne de Mare, a playwright on the steering committee of THAW. "About five of us were sitting around and talking about what on earth we could possibly do about the war, and it occurred to us that there must be a way to make what we already do political." As theater artists, they decided to use their existing spaces and upcoming productions to get across a message of dissent.

Some useful things on women:
Lysias 1 , On the murder of Eratosthenes, not to be confused with Against Eratosthenes , although some have suggested it must be the same man and the whole affair was really political. Why disguise the fact?.. for very good reason.... It is anyway a very artful speech. An apparently very simple and straightforward narrative is framed by highly-wrought argumentation. See how the smallest details of the narrative are picked up in the arguments at the end. What is going on? Does the speaker need to work hard to get the jurors ( dikastai) to apply a rarely used (?), very tough, literally Draconian, piece of archaic legislation? Or does the style only pretend that this is the hardest part of the case, when in fact the jurors would have no difficulty applying the law to the full?

It is a natural assumption of readers of Knights that the identity of the chorus is beyond dispute. They enter at 247 after a clear summons from slave 1/Demosthenes in line 242 P a
PAPHLAGON: Venerable jurymen! Brethren of the Order of the Three Obols, whom I feed by my loud denunciations, true or false! Come to my aid, for I am being beaten up by conspirators! CHORUS-LEADER: What a fraud! What a supple rogue! Do you see how he tries to flatter us and humbug us, as if we were senile? 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. And what is the explanation of the prefix xun- and the intensive in 266?

  • Aristophanes and the Definition of Comedy by M.S. Silk appeared in January and to my mind, at the end of the year, remains unrivalled for its originality and excellence. This study puts flesh - indeed muscles - on the bones of the numerous other studies of the so-called Old Comedy which appeared during the last decade of the previous century. None matches the imagination, breadth and depth of Silk's study.' - Erich Segal, International Books of the Year, Times Literary Supplement

Plato Symposium Aristophanes' Speech
Yes, said Aristophanes, who followed, the hiccups is gone; not, however, until I applied the sneezing; and I wonder whether the harmony of the body has a love of such noises and ticklings, for I no sooner applied the sneezing than I was cured. Eryximachus said: Beware, friend Aristophanes, although you are going to speak, you are making fun of me; and I shall have to watch and see whether I cannot have a laugh at your expense, when you might speak in peace. You are right, said Aristophanes, laughing. I will unsay my words; but do you please not to watch me, as I fear that in the speech which I am about to make, instead of others laughing with me, which is to the manner born of our muse and would be all the better, I shall only be laughed at by them. Do you expect to shoot your bolt and escape, Aristophanes? Well, perhaps if you are very careful and bear in mind that you will be called to account, I may be induced to let you off.
