Birds, Peace, Wealth: Aristophanes' Critique of the Gods

Thu, January 31, 2013

Paul Dry Books has just published BirdsPeace, and Wealth: Aristophanes' Critique of the Gods, three plays translated by Wayne Ambler and Thomas Pangle.

In these three raucous comedies, mortals outwit and even replace Zeus and his fellow Olympian deities. As Aristophanes provokes laughter at the foibles of gods and men, he arouses wonder at our human need for the divine.
