Aristophanes: Peace

Alan H. Sommerstein

Liverpool University Press

Aris and Phillips Classical Texts

In Peace, produced in 421 B.C., Aristophanes celebrates in anticipation the conclusion, after ten years, of the great war with Sparta. Peace, we are made to see, is within the grasp of the Greek peoples; let them make one final effort, and all difficulties and dangers will evaporate in the joys of feasting and rustic leisure.
