dc.description.abstract The study focuses on Aristophanes the sole representative of old Greek Comedy. This is an analytical study of his dramas. The poet is considered to have concentrated on the social, political and economic situation of the time he lived in. hence his dramas consisted of a topical value. His aim had been to find remedies to the weaknesses he saw in contemporary situations through providing a dream of a solution through his comedies. Some have even been led to refer to his plays as representative of a comic paper. But on examining in depth one is led to recognize the universal quality of his productions which surpasses the boundaries of time, land and the social context. The paper critically examines the messages provided in his creations which reach across time to appeal to even the twenty first century Sri Lankans. en_US
