Epic book online Books by: Aristophanes, David B. Barrett In The Wasps an old fashioned father and his loose living son come to blows and end up in court elsewhere Aristophanes milks the clash of generations for all it is worth by sending up the purveyors of new ideas like Socrates and Euripides the most controversial of the great tragedians In The Poet and the Women Euripides accused of misogyny gets a relative in drag to infiltrate an all woman festival and find out what revenge is being plotted with predictable bawdy results In The Frogs written in the darkest days of the Peloponnesian War the god Dionysus descends to the Underworld to find a poet to bring back does Athens in her hour of danger need the traditional wisdom of Aeschylus or the brilliant modern cleverness of Euripides As the great debate proceeds Aristophanes combines parody with slapstick and political discussion with pantomime high spirit to produce a hilarious and unique masterpiece
