Le accuse di corruzione e concussione nella satira politica di Aristofane
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The comedy is a unique source of understanding aspects and modes of corruption in the 5th-century Athenian society. Cases of corruption in institutional frameworks and their connections with the negative representation of the demagogue Kleonymos are here investigated; the charges of corruption made by Aristophanes against Kleon and his comments on law courts and legal proceedings are also discussed. The poet constantly and pessimistically staged a system that was both ridiculous and untrustworthy and, besides, could not be reformed because the new politicians were deeply corrupted and more and more able to take advantage of public offices.
