Aristophanes' The Birds

Categories: Literature & Poetry


Aristophanes’ comedy, The Birds, tells the story of two Athenians who set out in search of a better life. They are disgusted with their city due to its politics, poetry, religion and business, and they decide to travel to where the birds dwell. After meeting the birds and seeing how their land is ruled, these two men now believe that if they control the sky, they can have power over the gods and the mortals on Earth. Leave it to the birds to show these two men how to rule a world.
