The rollicking comedies of Plautus, who brilliantly adapted Greek plays for Roman audiences c. 205--184 bc, are the earliest Latin works to survive complete and are cornerstones of the European theatrical tradition from Shakespeare and Moliere to modern times. This volume presents three of the twenty-one plays in new translation.
The rollicking comedies of Plautus, who brilliantly adapted Greek plays for Roman audiences c. 205-184 bc, are the earliest Latin works to survive complete and are cornerstones of the European theatrical tradition from Shakespeare and Moliere to modern times. This fourth volume of a new Loeb edition of all twenty-one of Plautus's extant comedies presents "The Little Carthaginian, Pseudolus, " and "The Rope" with freshly edited texts, lively modern translations, introductions, and ample explanatory notes.
Wolfgang de Melo is University Lecturer in Classical Philology at Wolfson College, University of Oxford.
Wolfgang de Melo has established an updated text and rendered Plautus into smooth, pleasantly readable prose for the Loeb Classical Library...De Melo makes the world of Plautinopolis intelligible without becoming too familiar. Footnotes succinctly explain references to Greek and Roman allusions. Sometimes the translation presents a clear modern analogue with the literal meaning footnoted...Several enhancements improve the presentation of the new edition...The overall product is quite impressive. -- Fred Franko Bryn Mawr Classical Review 20121021
