In every era, comedy’s backbone and sinew is the element of exaggeration. In the case of the play Ladies'day, that was presented at the Great Dionysia of 411 B.C., the over exaggerated issue is Euripides’ loathing of women! So here we have a comedy that aims its arrow at one man alone and undoubtedly offers us a very colorful portrait of the personality and work of the renowned playwright! Euripides, much like Aristophanes, could see the cracks in the foundations of ancient greek society. However, the solutions (both political and social) that he suggested weren’t to Aristophanes’ liking. Aristophanes, let’s not forget, was a great fan of the heroic but also modest era of Aeschylus. So he grabbed every chance he could to mock and humiliate the last of the three major tragic poets of antiquity.
