FERNANDEZ, Claudia N.. “El día viejo y nuevo” (Nubes, v. 1134) o las novedosas ideas del conservador Aristófanes. Nova tellus [online]. 2006, vol.24, n.1, pp.63-89. ISSN 0185-3058.

The imminent arrival of the “old and new day” upsets Strepsiades, the debt-ridden protagonist of Clouds, because it is the time of the month when the creditors can begin to litigate to get their money back. The semantic contradiction involved in the name the Greek moon calendar assigns to this day summarizes in its conceptual dispute the controversial denouement of meanings of the comedy. The aim of this article is to explore in depth the opposition between ideas, concepts, and behaviors that express the old and the new, the traditional and the innovative, in several spheres of the play, such as the conflict between generations and the intellectual, pedagogic, and poetic debates.

Keywords : Aristófanes; comedia griega; Nubes.
