Wright (classics, U. of Exeter and Vassar College) tries to make sense of the many jokes about contemporary poets and poetry in fifth-century BC Athenian comedy, and asks what the plays can reveal about the early history and development of literary criticism. His topics include the importance of being clever, the theater audience and the adjudication process, fashion in literature and music, bodily functions, and parody as commentary.
