In Beyond Good and Evil, Nietzsche claims that after Plato's death, the only book found "under the pillow of his death bed" was something by Aristophanes.

    The Peace is about a man called Trygaeus who ends a war by talking to the gods, who bring out Peace; upon ending the war, the gods reward him by letting him marry Harvest, who will bring prosperity to farmers such as himself. The plot is really just that simple. Now, a lot of other elements make this play really good instead of just a typical play. Firstly, a lot of Aristophanes /5. But to get more detail on this we need to go beyond Roche’s introduction and look at books such as G.E.M de Ste.

The book is well written and very /5(26).

Aristophanes (/ ˌ ær ɪ ˈ s t ɒ f ə n iː z /; Ancient Greek: Ἀριστοφάνης, pronounced [aristopʰánɛːs]; c. – c.

Here and throughout the book Reckford illustrates Aristophanes' form of comedy with analogies to Rabelais, Shakespeare, Charlie Chaplin, Alice in Wonderland, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

In the remaining essays Reckford goes beyond the usual Freudian approaches, reinterpreting the comic catharsis as a clarification of wishing and hoping. So the essays in Beyond Aristophanes aim toward a history of the comic genre which is, as Dobrov states in the preface, “more complex, less linear,” and which moves “toward an integrated approach that embraces both mainstream and periphery.” If Aristophanes and Menander remain a significant presence in these essays, that is understandable, since these poets provide a.
