The present volume sets forth the main resources for the advancing student of Ancient Greek Comedy. An international roster of specialists contributes chapters organized into three sections: "Contexts": the intellectual, physical and socio-historical setting of Athenian Comedy; "History": the literary history of the Old, Middle and New periods; and "Elements": the text, language and formal components of the genre (including a comprehensive bibliography). This Companion is designed as a resource for understanding and interpreting the classics of Athenian Comedy from its inception through Menander. It will also be useful for navigating the principal corpora of texts, fragments and scholia that have been revised and augmented in recent years.This unique volume occupies the middle ground between short surveys and highly specialized scholarship. Contributors include: W. Geoffrey Arnott, Angus Bowie, Eric Csapo, Gregory W. Dobrov, J. Richard Green, Stanley Ireland, Heinz-Gunther Nesselrath, S. Douglas Olson, Alan H. Sommerstein, Ian Storey, Ralph M. Rosen, Andreas Willi, Bernhard Zimmermann.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"En verdad logra este Companion su pretension de proveer ayuda y estimulo para explorar el corpus comico griego. Acoge todos los aspectos de la comedia griega, los performativos, los textuales (filologicos, ecdoticos, literarios, linguisticos) y los socio- historicos. Aunque el griego no aparece transliterado, las traducciones al ingles permiten el acceso a quienes tengan escaso conocimiento de la lengua griega antigua. Es un libro insoslayable para el estudio de la comedia griega, el primero en su genero y dificil sera de superar." Claudia N. Fernandez in Sehepunkte, Ausgabe 11 (2011), Nr. 3 "[...] the contributors to this immensely learned companion will command the attention of both their professional colleagues and the advancing students of classical literature. The thirteen specialists, far from scripting a lengthy rehearsal of hackneyed arguments, have written perceptive and innovative (in certain cases even slightly controversial) introductions to their subjects, while at the same time offering arresting reassessments of important aspects of Greek Comedy. This heavy volume deserves every bit of shelf space it will occupy. Andreas Markantonatos in BMCR, 2011.11.45
