About the Author:


S. Douglas Olson is Distinguished McKnight Professor at the University of Minnesota.

Review:


"Of the thousands of comedies composed in ancient Greece, barely a dozen survive intact. But snippets of hundreds of others are quoted by later authors or are preserved on scraps of papyrus. Olson, an authority on classical comedy, here makes more than 200 of the most interesting of these accessible to nonspecialists. Olson has cleverly arranged the material both by genre and topic. This beautifully produced book is a unique and indispensable resource for all students of classical Greek literature. Essential." --Choice
