  1. Bibliography

The following items represent just a range of the vast bibliography on Roman Comedy. You will not be expected to read all of these. Take a good selection -- More specific guidance on individual episodes will be offered on lecture handouts.

It should be noted in general that there are good collections of important articles on Roman Comedy in Segal (2001) and several good introductions about Greek and Roman Comedy in general, and Plautus and Terence in particular. All these books are reference only in the Laidlaw Library.
