  • "Pour mettre fin à la guerre qui ensanglante le monde grec, les femmes d'Athènes, sous la conduite de Lysistrata, ont trouvé une solution : elles priveront de leurs faveurs tous ces vaillants guerriers tant qu'un traité ne viendra pas mettre fin aux hostilités."

  • "A woman's strike for peace using the most powerful weapon in the feminine arsenal forms the core of this the most perfectly constructed and continuously popular of Aristophanes' plays."@en

  • "Aristophanes helped shape comedy.... despite their often fantasical premises, were fairly consistently concerned with contemporary politics and social institutions. ... mildly aristocratic... patriotic ... suspicious of social innovation.... sympathetic to the struggles of the common people.... unrestrained in insult...exuberantly bawdy."
  • "Aristophanes' play, Lysistrata, takes place toward the end of the Peloponnesian War and centers on the lives of the soldiers' wives. One woman, Lysistrata, under the impression that a man's libido is ultimately his driving force in life, comes up with an interesting peace solution: to deny their husbands sexual relations until they can settle on a peace agreement that will end the war.

  • "One of the few plays that survived intact from the heyday of ancient Grecian drama, Lysistrata is an enormously influential work of satirical comedy. In order to bring an end to a destructive and never-ending war, the women of Greece take a temporary vow of chastity, pledging to remain abstinent until the conflict ends. As can be expected, mayhem -- and hilarity -- ensues."@en
  • ""Aristophanes' great anti-war drama glorifies the power of fertility in the face of destruction. Mr. Rudall's new translation recaptures the splendid variety of diction in Aristophanes, so that instead of a heavily poetic presentation the play becomes highly theatrical."--"@en
