    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Translating the comedies of Aristophanes is difficult, not least because of the obscene banter so characteristic of the genre. Drawing from translation theory and practice, this study examines attempts by a total of eleven German translators and editors to engage with the problematics of obscenity in the comedy Lysistrata. It also includes a systematic overview of their translation strategies.
