Aristophanes: Frogs

Alan H. Sommerstein

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

Aristophanes' Frogs was produced in 405 BC, shortly after the deaths of the two great veteran Athenian tragic dramatists Euripides and Sophocles; it was restaged a year later, a few weeks before starving Athens at last accepted defeat in the long Peloponnesian War.
