In Peace, produced in 421 B.C., Aristophanes celebrates in anticipation the conclusion, after ten years, of the great war with Sparta. Peace, we are made to see, is within the grasp of the Greek peoples; let them make one final effort, and all difficulties and dangers will evaporate in the joys of feasting and rustic leisure. The substantial addition in this second edition are eighteen pages of addenda to the Notes and Bibliography.
Contents: Text with facing translation, commentary and notes. New edition with addenda
college and university libraries should own a copy for students and faculty looking for a current, comprehensive bibliography to the play.
