'Recitatio in Taberna'

'Recitatio in Taberna'

The weekly Classical Recitation, ‘Recitatio in Taberna’, continued in the Coffee Shop on Thursday November 5th, with 6.1 Classicists - Arthur Dingemans, Emmanuel Berhanu, Kit Marlar and James Sloan - reciting a short extract from ‘Lysistrata’ by Aristophanes, the father of comedy. 

Written in the 5th century B.C. towards the end of the war between Athens and Sparta, this extract tells of how women storm the Acropolis and use controversial means to push for a peace deal between the two warring sides.
