Description
From the fifth to the second century BC, innovative comedy drama flourished in Greece and Rome. This collection brings together the greatest works of Classical comedy, with two early Greek plays: Aristophanes' bold, imaginative "Birds", and Menander's "The Girl from Samos", which explores popular contemporary themes of mistaken identity and sexual misbehaviour; and two later Roman comic plays: Plautus' "The Brothers Menaechmus" - the original comedy of errors - and Terence's bawdy yet sophisticated double love-plot, "The Eunuch". Together, these four plays demonstrate the development of Classical comedy, celebrating its richness, variety and extraordinary legacy to modern drama.
