His play Lysistrata was assigned me in high school and I loved it by the way but it was that Aristophanes was listed on Significant books on Good Reading that gave me incentive to read the rest. In other words, yes, Aristophanes plays are one of those fundamental works any educated person should know--reason alone to become acquainted.

But they're also fun--painless to read. Not stodgy--in fact often bawdy and inventive. In Peace his hero rides to Heaven--on a dung beetle. Lysistrata and Ecclesiazusae are both anti-war and feminist--yes, really. Or so it strikes me, although I'm sure there are scholars of the period who in a close analysis might find the misogyny of Ancient Greece peeking through--in say pointing out how women use sex and deception in Lysistrata to get their way.
But what we have here is arguably Aristophanes greatest certainly his most famous play, with a strong female title protagonist, who leads women from warring states to form a sex strike to stop a war. What's not to love? Well, yes, these plays feature topical satire that often does depend on the context of Athenian politics during the Peloponnesian War, so loads of annotations, footnotes is a good. So is a natural, flowing translation.
The first time I read Lysistrata, I found the way the translator gave the Spartan women a Scottish dialect rather bizarre. But those two requirements aside, these are still capable of inspiring laughter.
