Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

....Christenson’s translations ... Are lucid and engaging. Perusal of this volume will give students and the general audience alike a cogent sense of Terence’s elegance, and frequent glimpses into the wild wordplay of Plautus....

In this volume, Christenson offers teachers of Roman literature an excellent collection of approachable, enjoyable versions of key works the corpus of the comoedia palliata. The text is clean and mostly

typo-free, and the book is both well-manufactured and eminently affordable. With its introduction and commentary that connect the plays to other authors, cultural context, and wider socio-historical developments, this book will serve well as a staple for classes ranging from surveys of Roman civilization and Western literature to courses on ancient humor and the history of theater, independently or in combination with Christenson’s prior collection.
