Notes

Abstract: This is an English translation of the comic play the Frogs written by the ancient Athenian playwright Aristophanes in the late fifth century BCE. The translation is designed for a broad audience which may not know anything about ancient Greek or Athens. An introduction before the translation serves to elucidate the reader about Athenian culture and the circumstance surrounding the play�s production. Footnotes throughout the translation explain many of the obscure references and jokes which may be difficult for the reader to understand on account of the antiquated and foreign nature of the play. Unlike other extant English translations of the Frogs which employ censorship of lewd language, this translation openly presents language which is explicitly sexual and scatological in nature. Although something is inherently lost in translating ancient Greek to English, this is an attempt by using an introduction, notes and a literal style of translation to share with a modern audience as much of the content and context of the Frogs of Aristophanes as possible.
