Description

The rollicking comedies of Plautus, who brilliantly adapted Greek plays for Roman audiences c. 205--184 BCE, are the earliest Latin works to survive complete and are cornerstones of the European theatrical tradition from Shakespeare and Moliere to modern times. This third volume of a new Loeb edition of all twenty-one of Plautus's extant comedies presents The Merchant, The Braggart Soldier, The Ghost, and The Persian with freshly edited texts, lively modern translations, introductions, and ample explanatory notes.
