Venom in Verse:
Aristophanes in Modern Greece
Gonda A. H. Van Steen

Book Description | Table of Contents

ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is a good subject, which has never been properly explored before, and it deserves a well-researched book devoted to it.... Because Aristophanes is so obviously vulgar, popular and accessible, his work cuts across the dichotomy between the elevation of Ancient Greece as noble and pure versus its repudiation as elitist and exclusive. Van Steen explores these intertwining political and cultural dialectics with knowledge and finesse."--Oliver Taplin, Oxford University

"Van Steen's intellectual horizon extends beyond classical philology, to include critical theory and performance theory . . . Her arguments and foci are refreshing."--"Stratos Constantinidis, Ohio State University
