Erich Segal is Fellow of Wolfson College, Oxford. He was Professor of Classics at Yale and is author of Roman Laughter, a study of Plautus. He also wrote Love Story.
`These translations are unrivalled in English. The dialogue is brisk, puns and alliterative strings trip from [Segal's] pen with an abandon that rivals the master himself, and the lyrics really ache to be sung. It is great theatre!' Professor Walter Moskalew, Classics Department, Ball State University `Enormously playable . . . scrupulously accurate.' Dr Richard C. Beacham, Department of Theatre Studies, University of Warwick
