      High thoughts must have high language.Language is the supreme wordplay through which thoughts are communicable Words can either impart worldly acumen or indulge in pompous buffoonery The revered wordsmiths, the possessors of this dexterous artistry are no less than sly magicians removing implausible beliefs from their audiences like a mere pigeons from a hat Actions may speak louder than words nevertheless it is the medley of words that script that action The written world and its residents can [...]

      Brekekekex koax koax now what s that It s a chorus of frogs, of course.Well it wasn t until I heard Frogs mentioned on a few months ago that I thought, well from the comments made this play is really worth reading I accordingly purchased it, and the book re surfaced last night Why did it re surface In fact I had forgotten all about it the trigger being my neighbor Mich le who was telling me how noisy the tree frogs are at the moment.I must confess my ignorance in that I ve never heard of Aristop [...]

      A satirical look at what makes a classic16 June 2012 Before I start this commentary I must make reference to the translation that I am using, namely the 1987 David Barrett translation published by Penguin Classics The reason that I am sourcing this book is because while the original text is not subject to copyright, the modern translation is Even though I do have access to the original text actually, I just checked my collection of Aristophanes plays in the original Greek and the Frogs is not in [...]

      The Frogs is another of Aristophanes plays that is just top notch for me as a Greek drama and as a general comedy the plotline is just hilarious to behold, especially if the reader has understanding of the inside jokes like I did I read a post somewhere on Tumblr that described the plot of this play as follows Aeschylus and Euripides have a rap battle in the underworld while Dionysus croaks with a chorus of frogs And I d say that that s essentially it I know that Aristophanes is known to mock re [...]

      In reading a two thousand year old satire of specific Greek poets, it might help to be familiar with the two poets, Greek culture, or even poetry in general Or you can just plunge in on the recommendation of other humorists, claiming that his guy still has the goods two Millennia after his prime I chose option two And as such, most of the subtleties were wasted on me and I totally didn t get the ending But the bit about the passive aggressive servant is timeless and is still in use, in one form [...]

      Fine, but nothing special You might enjoy this if you know Aeschylus and Euripides and their works.

      The Frogs by AristophanesAncient Greek , B trachoiBatrachoi to me the name in Ancient Greek sounds very funny So is the play, although it seems to have some serious goals criticism of some writers.There is a light, pleasant mood in the Batrachoi, or so I perceived it I have listened to a romanian version of the play, adapted for radio My reading plan includes some of the famous works, broadcasted by the National radio, sometimes the Cultural section.Years ago, I guess about twenty, when the int [...]

      Okay, when I first saw Frogs on my set text list, I thought the title was a metaphor or something symbolic of Athenian democracy, but I never actually expected literal hell frogs Midway through the play and bored out of my mind in Chemistry, I realised something the potential memes are endless The dead will rise out of their coffins to carry your luggage to Hades for only two drachmas Dancing girls dig that lionskin Brekekeke xit ko ax ko ax Landladies in Hades x lost his bottle of oil There was [...]

      Aristophanes lived a long time ago His way of viewing the world was completely different from my paradigm of life.So, it follows, that his comedy would be diffrent.But no.Oh, humans It was very, very, funny I loved that I actually understood a lot of the inside jokes things I would not have understood if I didn t read so much about Ancient Greece.

    13. Patrick Hadley on said:

      Simply the greatest play ever written It is a hilarious onion of infinite leaf Stanford s edition is a little dated in some regards, but it takes a necessary middle path through the various controversies of the texts and its various possible interpretations.

      As funny today as it must have been 2,500 years ago when it had them rolling in the aisles in Athens.

      A long, long, long time before comedian Peter Cook flaunted a culture of deference and respect by insulting a Prime Minister to his face in front of a live audience, the ancient Greeks were doing it with olive knobs on.Written and performed in 405BC, The Frogs dares to stick it not just to the great and good of Athenian society, but even to the gods themselves Dionysus himself, god of revels and patron of drama, is mercilessly satirized at his own festival by Aristophanes Dionysus, in the compan [...]

      As R s de Arist fanes merecem o meu total aplauso Em geral prefiro as trag dias, pois sei que muito mais f cil identificar me com elas, do que propriamente com uma com dia com mais de 2000 mil anos de exist ncia As R s produziram o efeito desejado arrancando me largos sorrisos e algumas gargalhadas O seu conte do sat rico confere s personagens uma personalidade extremamente humorista.Nesta obra, Arist fanes procura criticar a obra de Eur pedes obra que desvalorizava , equiparando a com a de squi [...]

      The Frogs is a Greek comedy play which was written by Aristophanes My copy was translated by Benjamin Rodgers This play was first performed in 405 BC four months after Euripides died and two months past the death date of Sophocles The play begins with a dialogue between Dionysius, the god at whose festival plays were performed in Athens and his servant Xanthias of how they must rescue a quality tragic playwright from Hades to give Athens the cultural power it needs to reestablish its greatness I [...]

      Enjoyable tale of Bacchus descent into Hades to retrieve a poet to revive the theater and his trial between Euripides and Aeschylus to decide whom to bring back Of critical import is paying attention to the historical notes and the allusions to the writings of Aeschylus, Euripides and other Greek authors wherein most of the humor lies I wondered if such a story could be modernized hearing Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Edgar Allen Poe critiqueing each others poetry would be my choice for hilario [...]

    19. Ellee on said:

      Reading this via Daily Lit didn t quite do it justice Even then it was pretty funny I d LOVE to see this performed The basic summary is that Dionysus goes to the Underworld to retrieve Euripedes so that the god can be entertained on earth This leads to hi jinx and a contest between Euripedes and Aeschylos to see which one is the best playwright tragedy I highly recommend it to everyone there are elements that are funny even if you re unfamiliar with Greek drama mythology , but it s probably most [...]

      Brekekekex koax koax There were a number of references to ancient greek poets, myths and culture in this play which, had I groked them, would no doubt have increased my appreciation of it None the less, it was quite funny, and with an appreciation of P.G Wodehouse, a person can totally dig Xanthias and Dionysus as Jeeves and Whooster One part I especially enjoyed was Hercules s helpful directions into the underworld I read this play because an Empusa made an appearance in my Wednesday DD game, a [...]

      I don t know why, I really don t, but for some reason this makes me imagine a Hades where the dead poets society of that time doesn t stop singing But I don t feel like dancin When the old Joanna playsMy heart could take a chanceBut my two feet can t find a wayYou d think that I could muster up a little soft shoe gentle swayBut I don t feel like dancin No sir, no dancin today And so on And so fucking on.Actually, I want to see this performed Right now
