    The Greek lyric, elegiac and iambic poets of the two centuries from to BCE - Archilochus and Alcman, Sappho and Mimnermus, Anacreon, Simonides, and the rest - produced some of the finest poetry of antiquity, perfect in form, spontaneous in expression, reflecting all the joys and anxieties of their personal lives and of the societies in which they lived. For each poet and play there is an introduction, brief notes, and select bibliography. Also included is a selection of ancient testimonia to Old Comedy, nearly one hundred unattributed fragments (both book and papyri), and descriptions of twenty-five vase-paintings illustrating Old Comic scenes.

    A man can select whichever one he likes—thin, fat, round, tall, withered up, young, old, middle-aged, ancient—without setting up a ladder and entering the house secretly, or coming in through a peep-hole beneath the roof, or being carried in craftily in a heap of bran.   Women also feature in a number of Aristophanic fragments but no safe conclusions can be reached regarding the role of women in these plays due to the nature of the evidence. On the presence of women in comic fragments, see Olson, Broken Laughter: Select Fragments of Greek Comedy (Oxford: Oxford UP, ),
