Publicidade

Aristófanes foi um dramaturgo grego. É considerado o maior representante da comédia antiga.

Nasceu em Atenas e, embora sua vida seja pouco conhecida, sua obra permite deduzir que teve uma formação requintada. Aristófanes viveu toda a sua juventude sob o esplendor do Século de Péricles. Aristófanes foi testemunha também do início do fim de Atenas. Ele viu o início da Guerra do Peloponeso, que arruinou a Hélade. Ele, da mesma forma, viu de perto o papel nocivo dos demagogos na destruição econômica, militar e cultural de sua cidade-estado. À sua volta, à volta da acrópole de Atenas, florescia a sofística – a arte da persuasão –, que subvertia os conceitos religiosos, políticos, sociais e culturais da sua civilização. Conta-se que teve dois filhos, que também seguiram a carreira do pai.

—  Aristophanés, The Knights
Knights (424 BC), Context: Demosthenes: Do you dare to accuse wine of clouding the reason? Quote me more marvellous effects than those of wine.

Come, bring hither quick a flagon of wine, that I may soak my brain and get an ingenious idea. (tr.

„I pained folk but little and caused them much amusement; my conscience rebuked me for nothing.“

—  Aristophanés, Peace
Peace (421 BC), Context: Chorus [speaking for Aristophanes]: Yet I have not been seen frequenting the wrestling school intoxicated with success and trying to seduce young boys; but I took all my theatrical gear and returned straight home. I pained folk but little and caused them much amusement; my conscience rebuked me for nothing. Hence both grown men and youths should be on my side and I likewise invite the bald to give me their votes; for, if I triumph, everyone will say, both at table and at festivals, “Carry this to the bald man, give these cakes to the bald one, do not grudge the poet whose talent shines as bright as his own bare skull the share he deserves.” (tr. O'Neill 1938, Perseus http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/text.jsp?doc=Aristoph.+Peace+762) Peace, line 762-773 (our emphasis on 764) Aristophanes was bald.
