  • When we think of ancient theatre today, we tend to think of Greek theatre. Yet the Romans also had a lively and varied set of theatrical traditions, which have had a considerable influence on later drama. This book offers an introduction to these traditions, including the origins of Roman theatre, the extant plays of Plautus, Terence and Seneca, and the many works of comedy, tragedy, mime and pantomime that no longer survive as written texts. The emphasis throughout is on performance, the role of these theatrical works within Roman society, and Roman theatre’s legacy.

    • Clear, user-friendly layout is accessible for a range of students, both Classicists and those studying more general topics in Classical and ancient history and civilisation.

    • New translations of key passages of Latin and Greek written in approachable, readable English that can be easily accessed by all students.

    • Translation and commentaries by key scholars in the Classical field provide readable, informative texts with broad appeal.
