This book offers a fresh and challenging multi-disciplinary interpretation of Aristophanes' Frogs. Drawing on a wide range of literary and anthropological approaches, it seeks to explore how membership in Greek fifth-century society would have shaped one's understanding of the play, and, more specifically, of Dionysus as a dramatic figure.

`This book assembles many qualities. It commands attention by its scientific rigor ... based on a courageous multidiciplinary analysis, on an impressingly wide range of literary and cultural approaches and a series of cultural and above all religious considerations that have never before been used to clarify the text of the frogs.' M.Delaunois, Les Etudes Classiques, University of Namur.
