Who makes war, does not make love. A comment on Lisistrata by Aristophanes

Tuesday 29 March 2022

Donato R, Oscar Mauricio. (2019) Franciscanum [online], vol.61, n.172

This article provides an interesting analysis of Aristophanes’ Lysistrata, contextualising the play as a commentary of political negotiations towards peace that were happening at the time. However, the author analyses propensity towards peace as the same as towards war; it argues for a sort of neurological connection between peace and war in eros, which is the weapon used by Lysistrata. It is an interesting article which delves into the nuances between concepts of war and peace as being originated by the same sentiment.
