«Le donne mi hanno ordito una congiura e, riunite nel tempio delle dee, decideranno per la mia rovina.» Nella Festa delle donne, ambientata ad Atene nel V secolo a.C., le eroine di Aristofane fanno sentire la propria voce riunendosi in assemblea e osando istruire un processo contro un uomo, e non un uomo qualsiasi: Euripide, il più grande poeta del tempo, colpevole di averle “umiliate e offese” nelle sue tragedie. In un susseguirsi di travestimenti, parodie, caricature e altre geniali trovate, questa brillantissima commedia deve però soprattutto alla personalità delle sue protagoniste l’originalità e la forza che ne hanno fatto un classico senza tempo.

Eurípides tem conhecimento que durante uma celebração em honra das Deusas Tesmóforias (Deméter e Perséfone) irá haver uma conspiração das mulheres contra ele — porque nas suas tragédias diz mal delas. Como esse festival é interdito a homens, convence um parente a disfarçar-se de mulher para dar uma Leggi tutto
Secret Women's Business 14 June 2012 I actually quite like Aristophanes, not because he is a brilliant playwright, though since eleven of his works have survived 2500 years I really do not think that I am in a position to comment on his ability. Obviously there is a reason, and probably a good reaso Leggi tutto
Aristophanes uses the plot of this play to make fun of his contemporary playwright, Euripides. The play begins with Euripides afraid for his life. He has received word that the women of Athens plan to have a meeting in order to decide how they can get vengeance for the way the female sex has been po Leggi tutto

Let me not hear it said that one could not laugh at antique pieces! Aristophanes, the father of the Comedy, proves to us that laughter is timeless and that the current generation can be sensitive to it while acquiring a culture of ancient Greece. Defender of the people, politician, he knows how to m Leggi tutto
Funny, the argument is quite reminiscent of that scandal in Rome centuries later, when Clodius Pulcher got this mad idea to disguise himself as a woman to intrude into the females-only Bona Dea festival, that got him in hot water and his lover Pompeia Sulla sent back in disgrace and divorced by Caes Leggi tutto
Boy, I'm not sure why Aristophanes satirized Euripides so much, but I can say one thing: it's so funny when he does. In this play (which has a super-complicated, super-long title...), Euripides faces conviction from a group of disgruntled women because they don't like Euripides' protrayal of women i Leggi tutto
Read this after reading an article in The New York Review of Books which posited that Euripides wrote The Bacchae as a response to this play. The usual sequence is that the comic writer writes his comedy as a satire of an existing tragedy. After reading this play again, I can definitely see where
Thesmophoriazusae by Aristophanes In ancient Greece, the women have a celebration – Thesmophoria. And male characters wish to and make the necessary adaptations to attend, with funny results…at times. I am not taken aback by this play, but I need to write down that I have been trying it. In fact, before Leggi tutto
This is easily the most entertaining Aristophanes play that I've read. Consistently funny, and surprisingly more timeless compared to his political works. The basic plot is that Euripides is going to be tried by a group of disgruntled females because they feel he demeans them in his plays. His solut Leggi tutto
