Summary
"The rollicking comedies of Plautus, who brilliantly adapted Greek plays for Roman audiences ca. 205-184 BCE, are the earliest Latin works to survive complete and are cornerstones of the European theatrical tradition from Shakespeare and Molière to modern times. Accompanying the plays is a detailed introduction to Plautus's œuvre as a whole, discussing his techniques of translation and adaptation, his use of Roman humor, stage conventions, language and meter, and his impact on the Greco-Roman comedic theater and beyond."--Publisher's description
