Aristophanes: Knights

Edited by Alan H. Sommerstein

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

In the first play he produced on his own behalf, Aristophanes launched a violent attack on Cleon, the leading politician of the day, on the whole style of leadership that he represented and on a system which seemed to guarantee that a bad leader could be displaced by a worse. Text with facing translation, commentary and notes.
