Product description

This refreshingly accessible guide contains synopses and detailed commentary on 40 plays by all the major dramatists - Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Aristophanes, Menander, Plautus, Terence and Seneca - and advice about the best translations. The addition of playwright biographies, together with a survey of the ancient theatre and its social and political background, make this an indispensable resource for the theatregoer, student and general reader.
