Lysistrata Decoded

Speaker(s)
Description

Camilla Power places Aristophanes' 'Lysistrata' in its classical Athenian historical context, exploring well documented traditions of women-only rituals staged periodically in real life in resistance to male power. Connecting ancient Greek mythical themes with variations found recurrently across the rest of the world, this stunningly original research throws completely new light on Aristophanes' timeless comedy.
