Briefly (in at least 200 words) comment on the themes of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata that you found most interesting. Some questions to consider: how seriously do you think Aristophanes meant for the audience to regard Lysistrata’s political proposal, if at all?
Do you think Aristophanes was even trying to be political? Was he supporting greater freedom and political influence for women, or was he making fun of them? What about this play, written nearly 2500 years ago, seems especially relevant today?
