Product description

Like the 'Lysistrata, ' the 'Thesmophoriazusae, or Women's Festival, ' and the next following play, the 'Ecclesiazusae, or Women in Council' are comedies in which the fair sex play a great part. In 'The Thesmophoriazusae' Euripides is summoned as a notorious woman-hater and detractor of the female sex to appear for trial and judgment before the women of Athens assembled to celebrate the Thesmophoria, a festival held in honour of the goddesses Demeter and Persephone, from which men were rigidly excluded.
