Abstract

In this essay the concept of Aristophanes' comic theatre has been redefined as war drama, in opposition, one one hand, to the political tragedy, and, in the background, on the other hand, to the contemporary theoretical discussion on the so-called 'commetted theatre' in Italy. An attempt has been made to do a new reading of the Acharnians, the Peace, the Frogs, within the social and economic conflict opened by the Peloponnesian War, from the beginnig of Aristophanes's theatrical output (as far as we know) nearly till its end. Euripides' Bacchae are, in this context, and interesting tragic parallel to Aristophanes' war theatre
