New PDF release: Aristophanes the Democrat: The Politics of Satirical Comedy

By Keith Sidwell

This booklet presents a brand new interpretation of the character of previous Comedy and its position on the center of Athenian democratic politics. Professor Sidwell argues that Aristophanes and his opponents belonged to opposing political teams, every one with their very own political schedule. via disguised comic strip and parody in their competitors' paintings, the poets expressed and fuelled the political clash among their factions. Professor Sidwell rereads the valuable texts of Aristophanes and the fragmented is still of the paintings of his opponents within the mild of those arguments for the political foundations of the genre.
