Plautus: Four Comedies

The Braggart Soldier, The Brothers Menaechmus, The Haunted House and The Pot of Gold. Translated, with Introduction and Notes by Erich Segal.

‘These translations are unrivalled in English. The dialogue is brisk, puns and alliterative strings trip from [Segal’s] pen with an abandon that rivals the master himself, and the lyrics really ache to be sung. It is great theatre!’ Professor Walter Moskalew, Classics Dept, Ball State University

‘… Scrupulously accurate to the meaning and the spirit of the Latin, while, at the same time, dramatically effective as a medium for actors and audience.’ Dr. Richard C. Beacham, University of Warwick
