CAVALLERO, Pablo A.. Some keys to the interpretation of Aristophanes' Clouds. Circe clás. mod. [online]. 2006, n.10, pp. 75-96. ISSN 1851-1724.

This article proposes to find key-concepts to the interpretation of the comedy, from a qualitative analysis of the frequencies of different semantic domains, whose reiteration is suggestive. They are the domains attached to sóphron, hedýs, aîskhos and díke; moreover, kainós, arkhaîos, palaiós, géron; dexiós, sophós and leptós; strépho. This analysis let us to define that the comedy opposes two groups: on one hand, Strepsiádes, Pheidippídes and the Lógos Hétton; on the other hand, Socrates, the Chorus and the Lógos Kreítton. Aristophanes agrees with the position of the last group; he does not blame to Socrates but the sophistic rhetoric applied without ethic, with spurious purposes and with methods which undermine the social and civic order.

Palabras clave : Comedy; Aristophanes; Clouds; Rhetoric; Sophistic.
