Four Plays: The Clouds / The Birds / Lysistrata / The Frogs - Aristophanes, William Arrowsmith, Richmond Lattimore, Douglass Parker Great plays, amazingly relevant even after over 2000 years. Sure, Aristophanes is a bit of a snob (and other things) but it wasn't too hard too overlook the occasional classicist dabbling. The translation by Arrowsmith was a bit too "modern" for me, but an American reader may be able to appreciate it more than I have.
Also, for anyone who would be interested in this book - don't be intimidated by the page numbers! It's a quick read, even if you insist in paging through the notes and the glossary.
