A Commentary onAristophanes' Knights presents a fresh look at the play that cemented Aristophanes' reputation as a rising star in comic theater. Knights offers an examination of social and political life in ancient Athens during the empire-destroying Peloponnesian War, as well as giving us Aristophanes' comic send-up of the dangerous populist demagogue Cleon. This is a thoroughly modern commentary on a key play in the theatrical genre of Old Comedy, which satirized virtually every aspect of Athenian life in a period when Athens was at the height of its power and international prestige. In addition to the complete Greek text and commentary, this volume includes a substantial introduction to the playwright's career and to the historical and political background of the play. It includes advice for students on grammar and syntax, meter, festivals and staging, as well as topical and literary references and allusions that will help guide students to a mature appreciation of the comedy's humor, seriousness, and artistic quality. Priced and sized for classroom use, this is the first full commentary on Knights since 1901 and will be widely welcomed.

In the first play he produced on his own behalf, Aristophanes launched a violent attack on Cleon, the leading politician of the day, on the whole style of leadership that he represented and on a system which seemed to guarantee that a bad leader could be displaced by a worse. Text with facing translation, commentary and notes.

These thirteen essays combine classical scholars' interest in theatrical production with a growing interdisciplinary inquiry into the urban contexts of literary production. Taking as their departure point the annual comic competitions at the Athenian dramatic festivals, the contributors examine how the polis--as a place, a political entity, a specific social organization, and a set of ideological representations--was enacted on stage from the middle of the fifth century B.C. through the fourth. Applying a variety of critical approaches to Athenian comedy, these essays are grouped around three broad categories: utopianism, fissures in the social fabric, and the new polis of fourth-century comedy. The contributors explore the sociopolitical and material contexts of the works discussed and trace the genre into the fourth century, when it underwent profound changes. Simultaneously a study of classical Greek literature and an analysis of cultural production, this collection reveals how for two centuries Athens itself was transformed, staged as comedy, and, ultimately, shaped by contemporary material, social, and ideological forces. The contributors are Elizabeth Bobrick, Gregory Crane, Gregory Dobrov, Malcolm Heath, Jeffrey Henderson, Timothy P. Hofmeister, Thomas K. Hubbard, David Konstan, Heinz-GAnther Nesselrath, Frank Romer, Ralph M. Rosen, Niall W. Slater, and John Wilkins.

Fragmentation in Ancient Greek Drama

This volume examines whether dramatic fragments should be approached as parts of a greater whole or as self-contained entities. It comprises contributions by a broad spectrum of international scholars: by young researchers working on fragmentary drama as well as by well-known experts in this field. The volume explores another kind of fragmentation that seems already to have been embraced by the ancient dramatists: quotations extracted from their context and immersed in a new whole, in which they work both as cohesive unities and detachable entities. Sections of poetic works circulated in antiquity not only as parts of a whole, but also independently, i.e. as component fractions, rather like quotations on facebook today. Fragmentation can thus be seen operating on the level of dissociation, but also on the level of cohesion. The volume investigates interpretive possibilities, quotation contexts, production and reception stages of fragmentary texts, looking into the ways dramatic fragments can either increase the depth of fragmentation or strengthen the intensity of cohesion.

Attika, die ostlichste Landschaft Mittelgriechenlands, war zusammen mit ihrem Vorort Athen neben Sparta nicht nur die flachengrosste hellenische Polis, sondern mit rund 300 000 Einwohnern auch die bevolkerungsreichste. Als Wiege der abendlandischen Kultur steht Athen auch zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts im Brennpunkt des allgemeinen wie des wissenschaftlichen Interesses. Attika ist fur Historiker und Archaologen vor allem deshalb eine "zentrale" Landschaft des Mittelmeerraumes, weil sich in ihr materielle Reste, epigraphische Quellen und historisch-literarische Uberlieferung verdichten wie in keiner anderen Region Griechenlands. Da das klassische Zeitalter Athens unbestreitbar einen der grossen Hohepunkte abendlandischer Kulturgeschichte darstellt, ist alles, was diese Epoche betrifft, von grosstem kulturwissenschaftlichen Interesse. Auf eine Phase hochster Blute im 5. und 4. Jahrhundert v. Chr. folgte ein abrupter Niedergang und fuhrte in weiten Bereichen zu einer Fossilisierung der Kulturlandschaft, die ideale Voraussetzungen bot, Einblick in die Lebensverhaltnisse, die Siedlungsformen und Wirtschaftsweisen der Bewohner des antiken Attika zu nehmen. Zugleich ist Attika aber heute auch die am starksten zerstorte antike Kulturlandschaft Griechenlands. Unzahlige Fundstatten aus allen Epochen sind unbeachtet von Wissenschaft und Offentlichkeit dem unkontrollierten Bauboom der letzten dreissig Jahre zum Opfer gefallen. Der von Hans Lohmann und Torsten Mattern herausgegebene Band prasentiert neue Forschungen zu Athen und Attika und gibt Impulse fur kunftige Forschungen.

This commentary on the comedy Aspis des Menander mainly deals with text-critical and linguistic questions. The introduction also deals with observations on the dramaturgy, the actors and the Attic law. It provides highly insightful insights into Menander's linguistic art and uses the analysis of numerous parallel texts to refer to the gradations of expression from colloquial colloquialism to paratro-tragedy, which are used in accordance with the dramatic situation. As a result, the commentary is very suitable as an introduction to the Menander reading, but also offers considerable new knowledge for the connoisseur.
