Menander - new book

ISBN: 9780198152705

ID: 5758591

In ancient times Menander (341-290 BC) was the most admired and the most quoted of the writers of Attic New Comedy. He wrote over a hundred plays but until this century was known to us only by short quotations in ancient authors. Since 1907 papyri found in the sand of Egypt have brought to light more and more fragments, many substantial, of his plays and in 1958 the papyrus text of a whole play In ancient times Menander (341-290 BC) was the most admired and the most quoted of the writers of Attic New Comedy. He wrote over a hundred plays but until this century was known to us only by short quotations in ancient authors. Since 1907 papyri found in the sand of Egypt have brought to light more and more fragments, many substantial, of his plays and in 1958 the papyrus text of a whole play was published, The Bad-tempered Man. His plays are romantic comedies, dealing with the life of ordinary Athenian families, the direct ancestors not only of Roman comedy but also of English comedy from Sheridan to Ayckbourn. This new verse translation with explanatory notes and introduction follows the text of Menander closely but attempts to fill some of the gaps by supplements based on the dramatic situation and surviving words in the damaged papyri, so that the reader has, as far as possible, a consecutive text.

With editor`s dedication on free endpaper.: `Geoffrey with very many thanks for all your help and encouragement Maurice.` `Peter Brown provides a sharp and wide-ranging, yet coherent introduction. Brown covers Menander`s life, dating of the plays, the development of Greek stage comedy, theatrical and generic conventions of Menandrean comedy, and an assessment of Menander`s legacy for world theater. He also nicely emphasizes the lively stage action of Menander`s comedy in performance. (...). Balme`s translation is the most meticulous yet to appear in English. He renders the Greek iambic trimeter into blank verse and the trochaic tetrameter into English trochaics. (...) Balme expends the most effort making his translation reflect the state of the tattered remains of the scripts of Menander`s plays. He dutifully notes gaps, supplies hypotheses about their contents, and for shorter textual problems, he italicizes any translation of tentative reconstructions. (...) Overall, then, for Brown`s introduction and Balme`s exactness, this new volume will be rewarding.` (WILFRED E. MAJOR in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2002.06.06). From the library of the late Prof. W.
