Summary
In Aristophanes' most popular play, sex is a powerful agent of reconciliation. As war ravages ancient Greece, a band of women, led by Lysistrata, promise to deny their husbands all sex until they stop fighting. This volume of Lysistrata brings the play up to date with modern scholarship, providing an account of its history and containing new information about the comic theater and its social and political context. Lysistrata not only brims with topical references to social life, religion, and politics in classical Athens; it is also one of the best sources for information on the life of women in antiquity, offering a unique glimpse of their everyday life
