    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Aristophanes’ Lysistrata is one of the greatest political comedies of world literature. First presented in Athens in 411 BCE, during the war between Athens and Sparta, it can be considered a plea for peace. Since their husbands are not able to conclude peace, Athenian and Spartan women, guided by Lysistrata, force it by organizing a sex strike.The combination of serious topics with lascivious comic scenes is characteristic of this comedy.
