Book Description

Kidnapping, romance, and a contest between lover and leno form the plot of Plautus' Poenulus, an ancient comedy that provides a rollicking good time for modern readers and audiences. Scripted in the original Latin and laced with modern props and jokes, the University of North Carolina's rendition captured the attention of both general and classical audiences.

A complete set of materials for teaching, reading, viewing and staging Plautus' Poenulus is now available in a user-friendly format that will breathe new life into the Latin classroom.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good at the original Plautus in Latin, but still.... 4 April 2001
By Alexandra Benning - Published on Amazon.com
What I enjoyed about this book is, that it brings the interested reader, who probably is not aquainted with Plautus or Roman comedy at all, the laughs of ancient rome near, which seem still quite modern and worth a laugh. At times one could criticize it is not close enough to Plautus original play, but even if it would be only a translation, there would be differences-and not the majority can still read a Latin text in its original. So why not complete the process to make it understandable and transfer the essence of the comedy into modern times in order to make it aproachable for a broader audience? In this respect the authors have done a fine job. Definitely this is a book worth reading, entertaining as well as educating, and highly recomandable!
