Summary
"This book provides careful readings of Aristophanes' Knights and Assemblywomen and shows that by studying these plays together we can better understand each work. While Knights considers the perfect democratic ruler, Assemblywomen concerns the perfect democratic law. Kenneth M. De Luca's detailed analysis will be valuable to scholars of political philosophy, classical studies, and democratic theory."--Jacket
