Summary (From the publisher):

Under the leadership of the determined Athenian Lysistrata, the women of the warring city-states of Greece unite in refusing their husbands all sexual favors until all arms are laid aside. The resulting male dismay and counterattack, the women's valiant defense of their tepmorary citadel of virtue, and the final victory of the female cause represent a sexual comedy without peer in the history of the theater - as well as a fantasy that gives eloquent expression to its author's dream of salvation for his war-ravaged city.

Lysistrata (2003)
Edition Details:

This rollicking new translation of Aristophanes' comic masterpiece is rendered in blank verse for dialogue and in lyric meters and free verse for the songs. Appended commentary essays—on Athenian democracy, ancient Greek warfare, Athenian women, and Greek Comedy—offer lively and informative discussions not only of Aristophanes, but of the broader fifth-century social, political, and cultural context as well.
