Aristophanes – The Clouds

“Strepsiades and Pheidippides are discussing, Socrates is hanging in the air in a basket. Scene from Aristophanes’s comedy Clouds.”

 

Here, for reference, is Aritophanes’ play THE CLOUDS

This may shock you (!) but…

…all is not what it seems. And I have an opinion or several about that :o)

There is a possibility that the original of this story was an “ancient” text that carried a True Story.  It’s all connected to Socrates.

I just keep dissing those poor defenceless Romans and Greeks.

Oh, well. Never mind!
