English-language translations of
Θεσμοφοριάζουσαι (Festival Women)

by Aristophanes

"Thesmophoriazusae" (Θεσμοφοριάζουσαι, Thesmophoriazousai), or "Women of the festival of Thesmophoria", is a comedy written by Aristophanes, and first produced in 411 BCE. The play is considered one of Aristophanes' best parodies of Athenian society, with a particular focus on the subversive role of women in a male-dominated society, the vanity of contemporary poets, and the shameless, enterprising vulgarity of an ordinary Athenian. Excerpted from Thesmophoriazusae on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
As with all ancient Greek dramas, the interpretation may vary, given the condition of available manuscripts, the current study of ancient Greek language, and changes in the English language. As a result, varying English translations exist.
