Review:

"The translations of the three plays, "Lysistrata, "Women at the Thesmophoria, and "Assemblywomen, are straightforward, reliable, and fun to read. Readers interested in women's history and gender studies will especially welcome Henderson's contribution to their fields ." -"Bryn Mawr Classical Review

Synopsis:

Aristophanes' comic plays, Lysistrata, Women at the Thesmophoria and Assembly women contain the earliest portrayals of actual women in the European literary tradition, and are the only such portrayals that survive from classical Athens. These plays provide a glimpse of women not only in their familiar domestic roles but also in relation to household and city religion and government, war and peace, theatre and festival, and, of course, to men. In all three plays we find an inversion of the real world, where women and men have changed places. Aristophanes' comic gynecocracies put male fantasies of feminism - often intersecting with those of myth, tragedy and Platonic idealism - into sharp and memorable focus, and so help us to redefine our understanding of the troubling realities to which these comic fantasies were a response.
