This all-new successor to the New Surveys on Aristophanes (R.G. Ussher, 1979) and Menander, Plautus, Terence (W.G. Arnott, 1975) offers a concise, accessible guide to the study of Greek and Roman comedy in the light of current scholarship. It surveys the literary, theatrical, political, and cultural history of the classical genre from its beginnings to the death of Terence, with an overview of the work of each author and introductions to the surviving plays, alongside discussions of lost works and the criticism of comedy ancient and modern.
