Aristophanes: Lysistrata

Alan H. Sommerstein

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

Lysistrata is the third and last of Aristophanes' peace plays. It is a dream of peace, of how the women could help to achieve an honourable settlement, conceived when Athens was going through its blackest, most desperate crisis since the Persian War.
