Summary
This study provides an interpretation of the nature of Old Comedy and its place at the heart of Athenian democratic politics. Professor Sidwell argues that Aristophanes and his rivals belonged to opposing political groups, and through disguised caricature and parody, the poets fuelled political conflict between their factions
