Synopsis: This anthology includes English translations of three of Aristophanes' most popular plays: Acharnians, Clouds, and Lysistrata. Complete with introductions and notes, this volume collection provides honest translations of Aristophanes' ribald humor. Each of these plays is available from Focus in a single play edition, edited by Jeffrey Henderson. Focus Classical Library provides close translations with notes and essays to provide access to understanding Greek culture.

From the Publisher: Acharnians, first performed in 425 BC, is a comedy about the ordinary farmer Dicaeopolis, evacuated from his land and pressed into service in the Peloponnesian War. Failing to interest his fellow Athenians in seeking peace, he arranges a magical private peace for himself. On the the way back to the good life in the countryside, he is confornted by a crowd of patriotic charcoal-burners from Acharnae who want to stone him as traitor. But by restaging himself as a tragic hero, Diaeopolis convinces the Acharnains of the justice of his actions and proceeds to expose the corruption of the politicians and generals, especially Genereal Lamachus. After establishing his own free-trade zone and collecting food for a sumptuous banquet, Dicaeoplis wins the national drinking contest, while General Lamachus suffers from ignominious wounds.
