"It is arguably Aristophanes' greatest achievement, and certainly his most successful production....And yet, strangely enough, 'Frogs' has not been blessed with great critical attention....But this no longer matters, as Sir Kenneth Dover's magisterial edition sweeps the field. His many gifts as philologist, metrician, and literary critic have never been put to greater use than here....The introduction runs to more than a hundred pages, covering every imaginable aspect of the play. Throughout Dover tries to 'visualize the positions of the characters at any given moment, their movements and gestures, and hear their tone of voice in the mind's ear.' This is no easy task, given our lack of data about many feature of fifth century theater."Aristophanes is the author of 'Frogs', published 1997 under ISBN 9780198150718 and ISBN 0198150717.
