The Clouds can be considered not only the world’s first extant ’comedy of ideas’ but also a brilliant and successful example of that genre. The play gained notoriety for its caricature of the philosopher Socrates ever since its mention in Plato’s Apology as a factor contributing to the old man’s trial and execution.
