Music in Roman Comedy

Fourteen years after The Treatre of Plautus: Playing to the Audience (1998) and almost simultaneously with his overview of Roman theatre in the Greece & Rome "Texts and Contexts" series (2012), Timothy Moore contributes another valuable, lucidly written book for which both the specialist and the lay reader owe him a debt of gratitude. Moore's book capitalizes on a large body of previous work on the issue of palliata metrics and music, which makes for the most substantial difference between Greek and Roman New Comedy.
