Roman Comedy

Roman Comedy

This book explores the social institutions, the prevailing social values, and the ideology of the ancient city-state as revealed in Roman comedy. "The very essence of comedy is social," writes David Konstan, "and in the complex movement of its plots we may be able to discern the lineaments and contradictions of the reigning ideas of an age."
