About the Authors
  • This is the first edition of Platus' Amphitruo to appear in English for approximately forty years. It contains introductory essays, Latin text and a line-by-line commentary. Students will find this an indispensable tool in reading and translating the play, which was enormously popular in antiquity and has inspired modern adaptations by Molière, Giraudoux and Harold Pinter, among others. Dr. Christenson makes use of both current critical approaches to theater and traditional classical scholarship to offer many new insights into this delightful comedy.

    • Analyses the play in light of contemporary performance criticism
    • Assesses Plautus' place in ancient comedy and the play's influence in post-classical drama
    • First scholarly edition of the play in English in approximately forty years

He offers a wealth of information...an excellent bibliography and index...on the whole the text has been very nicely produced." BMCR
