Plautus, The Merchant. The Braggart Soldier. The Ghost. The Persian

LCL 163:

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 Molière to modern times. This third volume of a new Loeb edition of all twenty-one of Plautus’s extant comedies presents The Merchant, The Braggart Soldier, The Ghost, and The Persian with freshly edited texts, lively modern translations, introductions, and ample explanatory notes.
