"Considered to be Plautus's greatest play, Menaechmi; Or, The twin-brothers is the story of two twin brothers, Menaechmus and Sosicles, who are separated at age seven when their father takes Menaechmus on a business trip. This classic play, which provided the inspiration for Shakespeare's Comedy of errors, draws heavily on the theme of mistaken identity"--Page 4 of cover

Asinaria : the one about the asses by Titus Maccius Plautus( )

11 editions published in 2006 in 3 languages and held by 1,700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition of Plautus' rumbustious comedy provides the complete original Latin text, witty scholarly commentary, and an English translation that both complements and explicates Plautus' original style. John Henderson reveals this play as a key to Roman social relations centered on many kinds of slavery: to sex, money, and family structure; to masculinity and social standing; to senility and partying; and to jokes, lies, and idiocy. The translation remains faithful to Plautus' syllabic style for reading aloud, as well as to his humorous colloquialisms and wordplay, providing readers with a comfortable affinity to Plautus himself

156 editions published between 1514 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Philolaches is a good for nothing so-and-so: he seems to live purely to spend his father's cash, or, when he cannot get it, to borrow against it. Everything he loves is paid for by someone else's efforts, including the lady of his dreams, ex-courtesan Philematium. Now while his father is away earning money, Philolaches is spending it all on one big house party. But when his father returns unexpectedly, Philolaches is stumped. Luckily, his trusty slave Tranio has a plan: he bundles his master's guests into a closet, and distracts the father with a tall tale that the house his haunted. As foolish as Philolaches is, so is Tranio quick-witted, building yarn upon fib upon lie to keep his master's father in the dark

Die Komödie, die Molière für seinen "Geizhals" Pate stand: Der alte Geizkragen Euclio hat einen in einem Topf versteckten Goldschatz gefunden, was seine Raffgier noch verstärkt und ihm keine Ruhe mehr gönnt. Jeden Augenblick sieht er sich von Räubern bedroht, aus jeder zufälligen Bemerkung seiner Gesprächspartner glaubt er herauszuhören, dass sein kostbarer Fund entdeckt wurde. Doch schliesslich erfährt der Diener des Lykonides unbeabsichtigterweise doch vom Versteck, nimmt den Topf an sich und informiert seinen Herrn. Dieser Lykonides hatte ein folgenschweres Schäferstündchen mit Euclios Tochter, auf die der nicht mehr junge, dafür aber reiche Nachbar Megadorus ein Auge geworfen hat und dessen Hochzeitsvorbereitungen bereits im Gange sind. Dank des Goldtopfes als Pfand kommen schliesslich doch die beiden Richtigen zusammen. (Quelle: Spielberater)

PLAUTUS (Titus Maccius), born about 245 B.C. at Sarsinia in Umbria, came to Rome, engaged in work connected with the stage, lost his money in commerce, became for a time a baker's help, and for the rest of his life composed comedies. After his death in 184 B.C. 130 plays were ascribed to him, but at last only 21 were accepted as genuine; and in fact 21 (one being incomplete have survived. The basis of all is a free translation from comedies by such writers as Menander, Diphilus, and Philemon. So we have Greek manners of Athens c. 225-185 B.C. with Greek places, people, and customs, and a distinctive plot, for popular amusement in a Latin city whose own 'culture' was not yet developed and whose manners were more severe. But to make his plays 'live' for his audience, Plautus included many Roman details, especially concerning slavery, military affairs, and law, with some invention of his own, especially in management of metres. The resulting mixture is lively, genial and humorous, with good dialogue and vivid style. There are plays of intrigue alone (Bacchides, Mostellaria, Pseudolus); of intrigue with a recognition-theme (Captivi, Poenulus, Curculio); plays which develop character (Auluaria, Miles Gloriosus); others which turn on mistaken identity (accidental as in the Menaechmi imitated by Shakespeare in his 'Comedy of Errors'; caused on purpose as in Amphitruo); plays of domestic life (Mercator, Casina, both unpleasant; Trinummus, Stichus, both pleasant). We are told that Plautus' plays were under St. Jerome's pillow as he slept: They were certainly favourites of Luther
Comoediae by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )

244 editions published between 1447 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Menaechmi by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )

34 editions published between 1581 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Menaechmi is one of Plautus' liveliest and most entertaining comedies, the main inspiration for Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. Dr Gratwick's edition brings new light to bear on the interpretation of the play and on Plautus' place in the development of European comedy. Central to his treatment is the fact that Plautus was a dramatist who wrote to be heard rather than to be read. The various metres which he subtly and flexibly exploited for musical and dramatic effect are here explained in a way that challenges many received views but also offers the student practical assistance in grappling with the technical problems involved both on paper and in performance. The text has been newly constituted on the basis of a complete reappraisal of the manuscript tradition in the light of scholarship since the Renaissance. In preparing this edition Dr Gratwick has had in mind the needs of university students, but classical scholars in general will find much of importance to them
T. Macci Plauti Rudens by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )

74 editions published between 1887 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Rudens' is based upon the recovery by a fisherman, called Gripus, of a vidulus, or wicker basket used as a packing case, which has been lost at sea and which contains among other articles the crepundia or 'tokens' of the heroine Palaestra, who has fallen into the hands of a slave-dealer, Labrax. Labrax is attempting to carry her off by sea to Sicily; but the ship is wrecked upon the African coast, in the neighbourhood of Cyrene. Those on board escape drowning, but their property goes to the bottom
