The Oxford Handbook of Greek and Roman Comedy by Michael Fontaine (Editor); Adele C. Scafuro (Editor)
Publication Date: 2014-01-02
This handbook marks the first comprehensive introduction to and reference work for the unified study of ancient comedy. From the birth of comedy in Greece to its end in Rome, from the Hellenistic diffusion of performances after the death of Menander to its artistic, scholarly, and literary receptions in the later Roman Empire, no topic is neglected. The Handbook includes two detailed appendices that provide invaluable research tools for both scholars and students.
