Note
"This volume represents an attempt to offer not a systematic history of the comic genre from Graeco-Roman times to today, but a series of interconnected studies of some of the most important moments and figures in that history. These studies are dedicated to Jeffrey Henderson, whose Maculate Muse (1975) and critical edition and commentary on Aristophanes' Lysistrata (1987) -- among other major scholarly contributions -- have decisively shaped the way Athenian 'Old Comedy' is read and received today."--Foreword
