  • The Oxford Handbook of Greek and Roman Comedy marks the first comprehensive introduction 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 sympotic, artistic, scholarly, and literary receptions in the later Roman Empire, no topic is neglected. The result offers Hellenists an excellent overview of the earliest reception and creative reuse of Greek New Comedy, and Latinists a broad perspective of the evolution of Roman comedy. In recent decades, literary approaches to drama have multiplied (new historical, intertextual, political, performative and metatheatrical, sociolinguistic, gender-driven, transgenre-driven). New information has been amassed, sometimes by reexamination of extant literary texts and material artifacts, at other times from new discoveries. -- Publisher description
