Essay Topics

Aristophanes, as well as many other playwrights, has included historical figures in his work. As we know, Euripidies was an actual tragic playwright, and he is a character in the play. However, Cleon is another example of a real historical figure, though he is never represented onstage. Do you think fictional works affect how historical figures are presented, and if so, does it have a positive or negative effect on the person? Compare and contrast how you see Euripidies's, Cleon's, and Socrates's personalities today, and give evidence to support your conclusions.

Several other symbols, other than wine, are used in the three plays by Aristophanes. Pick three to describe and compare.
