Πάντα ήθελα να διαβάσω κείμενο αρχαίας τραγωδίας/κωμωδίας ή γενικά έπους κλπ.
Εκτός από το έπος της Οδύσσειας του Ομήρου, που είχα ήδη διαβάσει και καταενθουσιαστεί είπα να ξεκινήσω με κάτι ελαφρύ.

Τί καλύτερο από Αριστοφάνη!

Ο Πλούτος είναι ένα έργο πολύ μικρούλι σε έκταση, αλλά με αρκετό νόημα.
Μου άρεσε πολύ η γραφή και γέλασα αρκετά με τις ατάκες, αλλά αυτό που μου άρεσε πολύ ήταν πως αυτό το έργο μπορεί να διαβαστεί και από παιδιά.

Ανυπομονώ να συνεχίζω με άλλα έργα του ιδίου!!!
Καλή κωμωδία που, όμως, δεν έχει την δύναμη άλλων κωμωδιών του. Μου άρεσαν ιδιαίτερα οι ιδέες του για την διαφθορά του ανθρώπου από τα πλούτη και για το πόσο απαραίτητη είναι η Φτώχεια (το να πασχίζει δηλαδή κανείς για την ζωή του και να μην επαναπαύεται στα πλούτη) για την κοινωνία. Υποψιάζομαι βέβαια πως ο «Δίκαιος ἀνήρ» του έργου σύντομα θα είναι σαν τον «συκοφάντην»...

não foi assim tão engraçada como as outras mas passou-se bem!

So, this is the only evidence we have of Middle Comedy, huh? Well, it's pretty good. Not perfect, but good. It's weird to be a person living in the 21st Century, reading a play centered around such a base character and not thinking much more of it; all while knowing how unusual this was during Aristophanes' time. It wasn't as refined or humorous as Frogs or Lysistrata, but it had an interesting message inside about wealth and what good and bad it can bring to society.

Meh. I can't say that this was the best way to finish off my Greek drama project. Plutus is about a man who wants to be wealthy, so he is visited by Wealth himself. I can't say that I can glean that much more from the story, but there is still a lot of that nice Aristophanes-esque wit present.

There isn't much more for me to say about this- I'm not sure that I had that much of an opinion about this play at all.
Resultó interesante todo lo relacionado con el dios Pluto, pero considero que decae en cuanto al relato. No percibo la vis cómica de las obras iniciales, los personajes no son tan vigorosos y ni se aprecia tanto la crítica política que caracteriza la obra de Aristófanes. Considero que pudo haber sido más ingenioso. Rescato el agón con la Pobreza: interesante.

Διδακτικό, διασκεδαστικό και επίκαιρο 24 αιώνες αργότερα.

Δεν είνα πολλοί σήμερα που καταλαβαίνουν πως ο αληθινός πλούτος δεν καθρεπτίζεται στο κεκτημένο ποσό χρημάτων αλλά στο ήθος και τον χαρακτήρα, ή καλύτερα την αχόρταγη επιθυμία για περιπέτεια και επιτεύγματα.

Sarà che la commedia non è esattamente il mio genere preferito, sarà che questa era pure un po' assurda specie alla fine, ma Aristofane si becca due stelle.

Aristophanes (Greek: Αριστοφάνης; c. 446 BCE – c. 386 BCE) was a playwright of ancient Athens.

About 11 of his works are known in full, and they are the only plays of the "Old Comedy" style to have survived. They are The Acharnians, The Birds, The Clouds, The Ecclesiazusae, The Frogs, The Knights, Peace, Plutus (Wealth), The Thesmophoriazusae, and The Wasps. These plays have been translated into m
