Homework Help: History-Aristophanes Clouds

Posted by Jill on Tuesday, October 25, 2011 at 1:07am.

Henderson argues that the purpose of comedy at the festival of Dionysus is to give an outlet for those who disagree with the ideas of the mainstream, the powerful. Does Clouds support this argument or not? In other words, does Clouds "speak truth to power," as Henderson suggests the plays of the festival would have done? Show SPECIFICALLY where the play does this, or show SPECIFICALLY where it seems to support the powerful.
