Writing at a time when Athens was undergoing a crisis in its social attitudes, Aristophanes was an eloquent opponent of the demagogue and the sophist. This collection includes "Lysistrata", the hilariously bawdy anti-war fantasy; "The Acharnians", a plea for peace set against the background of the long war with Sparta; and "The Clouds", a satire on contemporary philosophy.
