This new translation attempts to inform the general as well as the more specialized reader of what Aristophanes put on stage in 423 B.C. It remains more or less faithful to the original Greek, avoiding radical changes that would make the Clouds conform to linguistic "fads" at the very end of the twentieth century.See more details below

Editorial Reviews

Luis A. Losada
This is a most useful book for classics in translation courses. It provides a very informative and readable version of one of Aristophanes' most popular plays. The notes are especially commendable in that they explain obscure material (including some jokes) in a clear style free from scholarly jargon, but not without a scholarly basis.
