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 fifth volume of a new Loeb edition of all twenty-one of Plautus s extant comedies presents "Stichus, Three-Dollar Day, Truculentus, The Tale of a Traveling-Bag," and fragments with freshly edited texts, lively modern translations, introductions, and ample explanatory notes."
