This Ancient Greek comedy gives a portrait of the First Misanthrope.
In a turn of events, confronted with neighbours and the supernatural powers of the Nymphs, (who dwell in the sanctuary next-door) – this mean, troublesome man, (who hates literally all humanity), is forced to go through a well-deep, spiritual journey.
