Roman laughter : the comedy of Plautus by Erich Segal( Book )

48 editions published between 1968 and 1987 in English and held by 2,542 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Roman Laughter, the first book-length study of Plautus, Segal argues that this neglected writer, often denounced by scholars for such crimes as "barbarous clownery," merits our serious attention precisely because he was the most successful poet of the ancient world. He analyzes the reasons behind this success, placing the author in his social and historical context and observing that Plautus's wildly comedic flouting of Roman law and custom had a cathartic effect upon a people bound by rule in every aspect of their lives. This expanded edition contains a new preface that reconsiders the work of Plautus in light of recent scholarship and also contains essays on the Amphitryon and the Captivi. -- Amazon.com
The death of comedy by Erich Segal( )

18 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 2,481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a grand tour of comic theater over the centuries, Erich Segal traces the evolution of the classical form from its early origins in a misogynistic quip by the sixth-century B.C. Susarion, through countless weddings and happy endings, to the exasperated monosyllables of Samuel Beckett. With fitting wit, profound erudition lightly worn, and instructive examples from the mildly amusing to the uproarious, his book fully illustrates comedy's glorious life cycle from its first breath to its death in the Theater of the Absurd. An exploration of various landmarks in the history of a genre that flourished almost unchanged for two millennia, The Death of Comedy revisits the obscenities and raucous twists of Aristophanes, the neighborly pleasantries of Menander, the tomfoolery and farce of Plautus. Segal shows how the ribaldry of foiled adultery, a staple of Roman comedy, reappears in force on the stages of Restoration England. And he gives us a closer look at the schadenfreude--delight in someone else's misfortune--that marks Machiavelli's and Marlowe's works

Oxford readings in Aristophanes by Erich Segal( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2002 in English and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This anthology is a 'must' for all serious students of Aristophanes. It includes in one volume sixteen of the most important contributions to the study of the only surviving author of Greek Attic comedy who has left us more than fragments." "The extant eleven plays reflect the spirit of Athens in the golden age - and its unique freedom of speech. The essays deal not only with the better-known comedies like Clouds and Birds, but also with the later, more unusual works such as The Assemblywomen and Wealth, which represent important stages towards the evolution of modern comedy. Subjects range from the classic question of Aristophanes' relationship to contemporary politics to more modern issues such as feminism, gender, performance context, and the interaction between fifth century comedy and tragedy. Many of the contributions are not otherwise readily available, coming from foreign journals and books difficult to obtain. All the Greek has been translated for the benefit of students reading the plays in English."--Jacket
