    DescriptionCarlo Ferdinando Russo's book has been a seminal work on Aristophanes since its publication in Italy in 1962. In his detailed analysis, Russo considers the plays as libretti for actors and singers rather than as mere texts, and never loses sight of the stage. This is the classic book about Aristophanes. Now finally available in English and much-updated, it is essential reading for any student of Athenian comedy.

    Review quote
    "Russo's book is both scholarly and lively, philological and theatrical. It is justly established as a milestone in Aristophanic studies."-Oliver Taplin "A lively and thoughtful book; no comparable study of Aristophanes' dramatic technique is available in English."-Kenneth Dover, "The Classical Review, 1962 Italian Edition "By vigorously examining the eleven extant plays Russo is able to re-evoke convincingly their material execution, to discover their theatrical properties and stage diction and thereby to expose the stage craft of Aristophanes and the theatrical world in which he operated."-"Religious Studies Review
