Jeffrey Henderson (PhD Harvard) is William Goodwin Aurelio Professor of Greek Language and Literature at Boston University, and General Editor of the Loeb Classical Library. He is the author of groundbreaking translations and articles on Greek comic dramatists. His other translations for Focus Classical Library include Aristophanes' "Lysistrata", "Clouds, "Frogs", "The Birds", and "Three Comedies: Acharnians, Lysistrata, Clouds."
Henderson has produced a charming translation of one of Aristophanes' most beloved plays. [This translation] will be useful for Greekless readers (undergraduates or general audiences) who will not require the Greek text. Henderson's detailed introduction in particular will be quite valuable for undergraduate or general readers as well. - Erin K. Moodie, Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2009.01.32
