    Plautus is the only Latin playwright of the period—aside from Terence, a whole generation later—whose works survive in the manuscript tradition. An incredible comedies are ascribed to Plautus, the vast majority of which were already in antiquity labeled spurious. The fifteenth-century discovery of Plautus’s lost comedies brought him, for the first time since antiquity, the status of a major author both on stage and page. It also led to a reinvention of comedy and to new thinking about its art and potential. This book aims to define the unique contribution of Plautus, detached from his fellow Roman dramatist Terence, and seen in the context of that.

That is my justification for offering conclusions less traditional than is customary in such brief treatises; anyone who discusses these plays as plays will find that the present condition of Terentian and, still more, of Plautine scholarship compels him to write controversially if he loves.
