The Peloponnesian War seems to have no end, and one woman has had enough. Lysistrata, the outspoken, practical-minded heroine of Aristophanes's comedic masterpiece, crafts a plan to end the conflict once and for all with a surefire means to unity: she implores all the women of Greece to withhold sexual privileges until a peace treaty is signed. What begins as a sworn oath becomes a movement that tests both sides and could change the course of history. Aristophanes's irresistibly bawdy

The Acharnians/The Clouds/Lysistrata 'We women have the salvation of Greece in our hands' Writing at a time of political and social crisis in Athens, the ancient Greek comic playwright Aristophanes was an eloquent, yet bawdy, challenger to the demagogue and the sophist. In Lysistrata and The Acharnians, two pleas for an end to the long war between Athens and Sparta, a band of women on a sex strike and a lone peasant respectively defeat the political establishment.

Pour mettre fin à la guerre, les femmes ont imaginé de se refuser à leurs maris aussi longtemps qu'ils refuseront de signer la paix, et se sont emparées du trésor de l'Etat, indispensable à la poursuite des opérations militaires. Cela se passe à Athènes, à la fin du Vè siècle, dans une Grèce déchirée depuis vingt ans par une guerre fratricide. La comédie d'Aristophane n'a rien perdu de sa force comique, rien non plus de la

In Aristophanes' Lysistrata, the women of Athens, fed up with the war against Sparta, go on a sex strike and barricade themselves into the acropolis to persuade their husbands to vote against the war. It is the most often performed of all Aristophanes' comedies. It is also, perhaps, the most misunderstood. This collection of essays by eight leading academics - written for sixth-form students and the general public alike - sets the play firmly in its historical and social context,

Lysistrata is one of the few surviving plays written by Aristophanes. Originally performed in classical Athens in 411 BC, it is a comic account of one woman's extraordinary mission to end The Peloponnesian War. Lysistrata convinces the women of Greece to withhold sexual privileges from their husbands and lovers as a means of forcing the men to negotiate peace, a strategy however that inflames the battle between the sexes. The play is notable for its exposé of sexual relations in a

Aristophanes' great anti-war drama glorifies the power of fertility in the face of destruction. Mr. Rudall's new translation recaptures the splendid variety of diction in Aristophanes, so that instead of a heavily poetic presentation the play becomes highly theatrical.

Most readers nowadays encounter the plays of Aristophanes in the classroom, not the theater. Yet the "father of comedy" wrote his plays for the stage, not as literary texts. Many English translations of the plays were written decades ago, and in their outdated language they fail to capture the dramatic liveliness of the original comedies. Now Michael Ewans offers new and lively translations of three of Aristophanes' finest plays: Lysistrata, The Women's Festival, and Frogs. While remaining faithful to the
