about

This is the first of the series of three Comedies--'The Acharnians,' 'Peace' and 'Lysistrata'--produced at intervals of years, the sixth, tenth and twenty-first of the Peloponnesian War, and impressing on the Athenian people the miseries and disasters due to it and to the scoundrels who by their selfish and reckless policy had provoked it, the consequent ruin of industry and, above all, agriculture, and the urgency of asking Peace. In date it is the earliest play brought out by the author in his own name and his first work of serious importance.

Aristophanes (c.446 BC - c.386 BC) was a comic playwright of ancient Athens.  Eleven of his approximately forty plays survive, providing modern understanding of the Old Comedy genre.  Little is known of his personal life.
