Aristophanes - The Acharnians ; The Clouds ; Lysistrata
Translated with an introduction by Alan H. Sommerstein, Penguin Books, London, 1973, paperback, name and stamp on half-title else a nice tidy copy, 254pp.

Aristophanes (c.447-c.385 B.C.), a contemporary of Socrtes, was the last and greatest of the Old Arric comedians.
Only eleven of his plays survive, and this volume contains ‘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. 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, and his comedy reveals a deep sympathy and longing for the return of a peaceful and honest way of life.
