KIRKUS REVIEW

Two volume edition, a fine piece of bookmaking, and a must item for those to whom you sold the companion set, Complete Greek Drama. The editor, associate professor of the classics at Princeton, has selected the best translations available, and in some instances secured new translations if old ones were not adequate. The vitality of these Roman plays is extraordinary. The edition includes all the extant plays of Plautus, Terence and Seneca; there is a brief introduction to each play, and accompanying notes; and a general introduction summarizes origins, lines of development, subsequent influence, and contemporary writers, as well as giving data on staging, etc. Should be easy to sell to college libraries and public libraries.
