Lysistrata is a one-joke play...but it's a hell of a joke. Not as funny as I was hoping, but I suspect some of that is the fault of the translation. Parker's trying for colloquial, but the almost fifty years since this edition's publication means most of his efforts fall flat. One wonders what Fagles would make of the thing...
