Light General Wear. Interior Clean and bright. Quite a decent copy.; Penguin Classics; 0.7 x 7 x 4.4 Inches; 336 pages; The plays in this volume all contain Aristophanes' trademark bawdy comedy and dazzling verbal agility. In "The Birds", two frustrated Athenians join the birds to build the utopian city of 'Much Cuckoo in the Clouds'. "The Knights" is a venomous satire on Cleon, a prominent Athenian demagogue, while "The Assembly Women" deals with the battle of the sexes as the women of Athens infiltrate the all-male Assembly in disguise. The lengthy conflict with Sparta is the subject of "Peace", inspired by the hope of a settlement in 421 BC, and "Wealth" reflects on the economic catastrophe that hit Athens after the war.; CLASSICS
