Knights was the first play to be produced by Aristophanes on his own behalf. In it, he launched a violent attack on Cleon, the leading politician of the day, on the whole style of leadership that he represented and on a system which seemed to guarantee that a bad leader could be displaced by a worse. This edition presents the Greek text with facing-page translation, introduction, 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
'Sommerstein has exercised throughout the refreshing independence of judgement, backed by learning.'
JACT
`This work is a fine and unpretentious introduction to Aristophanic comedy.'Journal of Hellenic Studies
