Abstract

The animal choruses of Greek Old Comedy appeared on stage for a generation or two, mostly in the later fifth century B.C., and then disappeared. What factors intersected to bring them about? The book examines the evidence from vase-painting as well as ancient literary and philosophical traditions about animals and human culture.
