Eduard Fraenkel was one of the most influential classicists of the twentieth century. His Plautine Elements in Plautus (originally published in German in 1922) revolutionized the study of Roman comedy. It is still essential reading for students and scholars of Plautus. This translation makes it accessible to an English-speaking readership for the first time. All Latin and Greek is translated, thus making the work available to a wider audience consisting of all those interested in Roman drama. The book includes a translation of the Addenda to the Italian translation published in 1960. The English translation is prefaced by an essay which gives an introduction to developments in Plautine scholarship since 1960.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Deeply satisfactory * Colin Leach, Notes and Queries *
...one of the greatest works of classical scholarship. I do not review it, I salute it. * TLS *
[this] monumental study has now, at long last been translated in to clear..English..Fraenkel makes a cohesive and still convincing case for the idea that Plautus' poetic vision is about giving voice to the voiceless. * London Review of Books *
Thanks to this new translation...the audience who will be able to benefit from Fraenkel's deep and insightful knowledge will broaden much further. * Scholia Reviews *
