By Keith Sidwell

This e-book offers a brand new interpretation of the character of previous Comedy and its position on the middle of Athenian democratic politics. Professor Sidwell argues that Aristophanes and his opponents belonged to opposing political teams, every one with their very own political time table. via disguised sketch and parody in their opponents' paintings, the poets expressed and fuelled the political clash among their factions. Professor Sidwell rereads the significant texts of Aristophanes and the fragmented is still of the paintings of his competitors within the mild of those arguments for the political foundations of the genre.
