The rollicking comedies of Plautus, who brilliantly adapted Greek plays for Roman audiences c. 205–184 BC, are the earliest Latin works to survive complete and are cornerstones of the European theatrical tradition from Shakespeare and Molière to modern times.

This fourth volume of a new Loeb Classical Library edition of all twenty-one of Plautus’s extant comedies presents The Little Carthaginian, Pseudolus, and The Rope with freshly edited texts, lively modern translations, introductions, and ample explanatory notes.
