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.

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

—  Aristophanés
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, [http://www. perseus. tufts. edu/hopper/text. jsp? doc=Aristoph.+Peace+762 Perseus]) Peace, line 762-773 (our emphasis on 764) Aristophanes was bald.

„Demosthenes [to the Sausage-Seller]:“

—  Aristophanés
Context: Demosthenes [to the Sausage-Seller]: Mix and knead together all the state business as you do for your sausages. To win the people, always cook them some savoury that pleases them. Besides, you possess all the attributes of a demagogue; a screeching, horrible voice, a perverse, crossgrained nature and the language of the market-place. In you all is united which is needful for governing. (tr. O'Neill 1938, [http://www. perseus. tufts. edu/hopper/text. jsp? doc=Aristoph.+Kn.+214 Perseus]) Knights, line 214-219

—  Aristophanés
Context: [909] Philosophy: Why, you Precocious Pederast! You Palpable Pervert! [910] Sophistry: Pelt me with roses! [910] Philosophy: You Toadstool! O Cesspool! [911] Sophistry: Wreath my hairs with lilies! [911] Philosophy: Why, you Parricide! [912] Sophistry: Shower me with gold! Look, don't you see I welcome your abuse? [913] Philosophy: Welcome it, monster? In my day we would have cringed with shame. [914] Sophistry: Whereas now we're flattered. Times change. The vices of your age are stylish today.
