Listener Opinions

    " The Frogs has one of the best lines in Greek Lit. But the line, as well as most of Aristophanes's work, is NSFW. "

    " I don't always love Aristophanes; he can really cram the obscure contemporary references into his stuff, which makes it sortof impossible to get the jokes. But he makes a lot of fart jokes, too, and those are timeless. "

    " Just Read Lysistrata and found it not as funny as I'd hoped. "

    " Well, obviously I learned that Greek plays are easier to stay awake for than old Greek books, but that the chorus makes zero sense to me. And of course that if you withhold sex anything is possible. "

    " Big fan of Aristophanes. Nuf said. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Spencer | 1/17/2009

    " My edition only included The Birds and The Frogs. Gained unwanted insight into the low morals of the Greeks. Wouldn't recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary | 3/24/2008

    " Who knew Greek theater was airing all the issues we think define the contemporary landscape? "

    " The Frogs is laugh-out-loud funny, even in 2008. "
