Review: The Journal of Indo-European Studies - September 27, 2005
All is done to help the students get the maximum profit from Plautus’ lively scenes and his magnificent Latin depictions of quarreling, brawling, lamenting and lovemaking in ancient Rome. It shows how the popular comedies of Antiquity can be made especially attractive to modern audiences. This major achievement deserves all praise!
