52 in 52 Week 47: Peace by Aristophanes

I love this book cover (I read the free Kindle version). 

This play by Aristophanes is about war and it unsavoriness.  It involves a dung beetle carrying Trygaeus, an old Athenian, to the home of the gods, Mount Olympus, so that Zeus can save Athens. When he gets there he find the god of War in charge and the goddess of Peace buried. Tragaeus saves the day by digging up Peace.
