The City as Comedy: Society and Representation in Athenian Drama

By Gregory W. Dobrov | Go to book overview
87.
On the problem of slavery as something indispensable to this and all other ancient utopias, see the interesting essay "Slavery and the Rule of Women in Tradition, Myth, and Utopia," in Vidal-Naquet 1986, 205-23.
88.
This interpretation of Ecclesiazusae has been advanced most notably by Wilamowitz 1927, 203-21; Newiger 1957, 173-76; and Flashar 1967, 154-58. On irony in Aristophanes' late plays generally, see Carrière 1979, 105-10.
89.
in favor of finding a serious political tendency, see de Ste. Croix 1972, 355-76; Forrest 1975; and Henderson 1990. Against it, see Gomme 1938; Goldhill 1991, 167-222; and, with qualifications, Heath 1987.
90.
On the ultimately oligarchical character of most utopian schemes, see the just remarks of Dawson 1992, 36-37.
