After a journey to the Moon with Lucian we’ll end up in Cloud Cuckoo Land with Aristophanes, taking some philosophical and political lessons on the way. We’ll read from a Greek novel in which the heroine loses her head but not her happy ending, and we’ll eavesdrop on Athenaeus’ dinner party for a bit of erudite whimsy.
