Lysistrata (AmazonClassics Edition)

by Aristophanes,

The Peloponnesian War seems to have no end, and one woman has had enough. Lysistrata, the outspoken, practical-minded heroine of Aristophanes’s comedic masterpiece, crafts a plan to end the conflict once and for all with a surefire means to unity: she implores all the women of Greece to withhold sexual privileges until a peace treaty is signed.
