The classic reference commentary. Supposedly Stanford has a better sense of humour, but it doesn't really show, and Stanford is older school and more straight-laced than Dover. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198150717, Paperback)

This new abridged edition of Aristophanes' Frogs provides the students with the text of the play and includes a detailed commentary and full introduction. Sir Kenneth Dover has now abridged the acclaimed edition which he first produced in 1993 and added a vocabulary which eliminates the need for recourse to a lexicon. The result is an edition which fits much more closely the needs of students.

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 12 Sep 2016 10:06:24 -0400)

"A dramatic comedy about Dionysus, the patron of drama, who attempts to bring Euripides back from Hades. Aristophanes' ridicule of Dionysus serves as a strong example of Old Comedy's permissiveness" --Provided by publisher.
