An Athenian Farmer - fed up with the unending war against the Spartans - feeds so much of the shit the war has brought him to a dung-beetle that he is able to saddle it up and ride it - flying to the house of Zeus - there to plead the case for Peace...

Before now, only initiates into the mysteries of Ancient Greek could truly appreciate the genius of Aristophanes, but with this book, all those wishing to read, sing, play, or study this groundbreaking masterpiece have all that they need in hand: a lively and modern text offering two complimentary versions of the play - one in fleetfooted verse, where everything hitherto obscure has been stood to reason by a few carefully concocted rhymes - and a second, a near-verbatim interlineal, woven into a curated copy of the original Attic Greek...

The book includes a fully customized glossary of explanatory notes (with more sober explanations than those of the rhyming verse ) for the many, often mysterious allusions to which each entry refers.

QUIDZUNC is also now sponsoring a youtube channel dedicated to publishing selections from Fraser's translations as a suite of songs. You can view the playlist for PEACE at https: //www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9gKIjAJZVoiTmD3-d6xhZeMRaLTyIbsf
