Product description

These comedies by Menander reveal that the oft-employed theme of mistaken identity is as old as the Great Dionysia. Teachers and students will find that this edition remains loyal to the Greek originals without confining itself to the literalism that has made many previous translations unusable in the classroom and inaccessible to general readers. These translations promise to become the standard for decades to come, introducing readers to the timelessness of the human experience brilliantly depicted in classical Greek drama.
