Summary
"In recent decades literary approaches to drama have multiplied: new historical, intertextual, political, performative and metatheatrical, socio-linguistic, gender-driven, transgenre-driven. The Oxford Handbook of Greek and Roman Comedy marks the first comprehensive introduction to 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 beginning in the age of Alexander to its artistic, scholarly, and literary receptions in the later Roman Empire, no topic is neglected. Forty-one essays spread across Greek comedy, Roman comedy, and the transmission and reception of ancient comedy by an international team of experts offer cutting-edge guides through the immense terrain of the field, while an expert introduction surveys the major trends and shifts in scholarly study of comedy from the 1960s to today. The handbook includes two detailed appendices that provide invaluable research tools for both scholars and students. The result offers Hellenists an excellent overview of Greek comedy and its earliest reception and creative reuse, Latinists a broad perspective of the evolution of Roman Comedy, and scholars and students of classics an excellent resource and entry point for future research."--book jacket
