Description

I would like to touch upon the humorous elements I've found, that Aristophanes has given me, in reading ancient Greek plays by Aristophanes. It's an appeal to the base and vulgar things he finds funny. It will be clean in presentation, but I expect it will have some of his funny lines included unedited. I'm thinking South Park, I'm thinking The Boondocks, he's giving me social commentary with his sense of humor. The big point is the more we change, the more things stay the same, and play stays the same as well as certain human elements. Its framework will be Platonic, because Aristophanes was featured in Plato's Symposium, so it makes sense to do so. While Plato won't be the focus of presentation, it will be necessary for framework. I'll draw upon Aristophanes' whole body of work, which I've read, well-known ones including Frogs as well as Wasps.
