Excellent translation if you want something historically accurate (as opposed to the translator's own modern substitute jokes). The book does contain the plays stated (Birds, Lysistrata, Assembly-Women, Wealth): another user's comment is incorrect (possibly added to the wrong item?).Was this review helpful?

This probably has a pretty decent translation, but this book is not the content that is listed on the website. It only has "The Birds", "The Frogs" and "The Clouds." I was looking for an edition that had Birds and Peace, and obviously this seemed like a good choice. Until they update the table of contents, I would not recommend this edition.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
