The Complete Plays of Aristophanes
A poet who hated an age of decadence, armed conflict, and departure from tradition, Aristophanes' comic genius influenced the political and social order of his own fifth-century Athens. But as Moses Hadas writes in his introduction to this volume, 'His true claim upon our attention is as the most brilliant and artistic and thoughtful wit our world has known.' Includes The Acharnians, The Birds, The Clouds, Ecclesiazusae, The Frogs, The Knights, Lysistrata, Peace, Plutus, Thesmophoriazusae, and The Wasps.

This is definitely a case of poor translation making ancient stories completely unreadable. I could hardly follow what the heck was going on. This was terrible. Read full review

Read Clouds. This edition is atrociously bad. No line numbers, references to things that happened after Ancient Greece, and the "bottom stretched". Read full review
