Loeb Classical Library > Aristophanes


Henderson, who may fairly be considered the leading Aristophanic scholar in North America, has now…provided us with both a useful text and idiomatic…translation. It is certainly a work that scholars may use with confidence and may recommend to their students.—Ian C. Storey, The Bryn Mawr Classical Review

It is accordingly a pleasure to note the appearance of the first of what will be four new Loeb volumes of Aristophanes…this is an important edition of a major Greek author and an absolute ‘must-buy’ for all college and university libraries.—S. Douglas Olson, The Classical World

Henderson’s translation keeps close to the Greek, but successfully manages to indicate something of Aristophanes’s linguistic diversity; it has been carried off with admirable crispness… A highly welcome addition to the Loeb Library.—Stephen Halliwell, Greece and Rome

Henderson’s sound texts and plain translations give us exactly the Aristophanes we need: a reliable prose waiting to be quickened into poetic life by the reader’s imagination, laughter, and amazement.—Donald Lyons, The New Criterion

Speaking with SpeakOut Boston

We continue our celebration of Pride Month by talking with some of the speakers who volunteer with SpeakOUT Boston. They share their stories with a variety of audiences to foster a better understanding of the LGBTQ+ community, so we thought we’d ask them some questions of our own.
