Collecting three comedies that show Aristophanes tackling the consequences of war and social upheaval in Athens with his characteristic wit, Lysistrata and Other Plays is translated from the Greek with an introduction and notes by Alan H. Sommerstein in Penguin Classics. Writing at a time of political and social crisis in Athens, Aristophanes was an eloquent, yet bawdy challenger to the demagogue and the sophist. In Lysistrata, the titular heroine persuades the women of Greece to withhold sex from their husbands, forcing them to end the Peloponnesian War; and in The Archanians, a lone peasant enters into a private peace treaty with the Spartans, much to the chagrin of his fellow Athenians.

LYSISTRATA AND OTHER PLAYS: THE ACHARNIANS, THE CLOUDS, LYSISTRATA; ED. BY ALAN H. SOMMERSTEIN.
Marrying deft social commentary to a rich, earthy comedy, the three comedies collected in Aristophanes' The Frogs and Other Plays offers a unique insight into one of the most turbulent periods in Ancient Greek history. This Penguin Classics edition is translated by David Barrett with revisions, an introduction and notes by Shomit Dutta. The master of ancient Greek comic drama, Aristophanes combined slapstick, humour and cheerful vulgarity with acute political observations.

It is a comic account of a woman's extraordinary mission to end the Peloponnesian War between Greek city states by denying all the men of the land any sex, which was the only thing they truly and deeply desired. Lysistrata persuades the women of the warring cities to withhold sexual privileges from their husbands and lovers as a means of forcing the men to negotiate peace—a strategy, however, that inflames the battle between the sexes. Additionally, its dramatic structure represents a shift from the conventions of Old Comedy , a trend typical of the author's career. At this time, Greek theatre was a profound [ clarification needed ] form of entertainment, which was extremely popular for all audiences as it addressed political issues relevant to that time. These lines, spoken by the Athenian Lysistrata and her friend Calonice at the beginning of the play,  set the scene for the action that follows. Women, as represented by Calonice, are sly hedonists in need of firm guidance and direction.
