Clouds is a partly revised version of a play that failed when it was first produced. It has always fascinated (and usually shocked) students of philosophy because of its portrayal of Socrates as an atheist and a teacher of dishonest rhetoric, justly punished by the agents of the gods whom he refuses to recognise. This third edition was published in 1991, and has been reprinted in 2007 with addenda and a new bibliography. [Greek text with facing-page translation, commentary and notes.]

MEDIA REVIEWS
`For an overall series of the entire corpus, including critical text, commentary, translation, and full introduction, all subsumed to one man's intelligent analysis and wide-ranging scholarship, Sommerstein stands triumphantly alone. [...] Aristophanes is lucky to have so devoted, erudite, and witty a modern celebrant.'
Scholia
`This work is a fine and unpretentious introduction to Aristophanic comedy.'
Journal of Hellenic Studies
'Sommerstein has exercised throughout the refreshing independence of judgement, backed by learning.'
JACT
