'as a first introduction to Aristophanes this lively edition will be warmly recommended. The detailed commentary is lucid and concise, witty and intelligent. MacDowell scrutinizes each problem with genuine interest and never loses sight of the stage ... Especially valuable are his notes on prosopography. The technical details of the law courts are clearly elucidated and the metrical analyses presented with elegance and good taste.' Colin Austin, Classical Review
'an outstanding edition.' K. G., The Classical Outlook
'[MacDowell] gives a lively visual impression of the successive scenes ... plenty of lively translations are provided ... Lexicographical, grammatical and historical matters are very fully considered ... A copious apparatus criticus and two comprehensive indexes complete a satisfying interpretation of what the editor justifiably calls one of the world's best comedies.' W. B. Stanford in Hermathena
