Henderson's sound texts and plain translations give us exactly the Aristophanes we need: a reliable prose waiting to be quickened into poetic life by the reader's imagination, laughter, and amazement. (Donald Lyons New Criterion
Henderson, who may fairly be considered the leading Aristophanic scholar in North America, has now...provided us with both a useful text and idiomatic...translation. It is certainly a work that scholars may use with confidence and may recommend to their students. (Ian C. Storey Bryn Mawr Classical Review
Henderson's translation keeps close to the Greek, but successfully manages to indicate something of Aristophanes' linguistic diversity; it has been carried off with admirable crispness...A highly welcome addition to the Loeb Library. (Stephen Halliwell Greece and Rome

this is an important edition of a major Greek author and an absolute "must-buy" for all college and university libraries. (S. Douglas Olson Classical World
