Plautus' Curculio, the shortest of the twenty surviving comedies by ancient Rome's master dramatist, certainly is among his best. It has all the characteristics that make Plautus a perenial favorite among readers of Latin: archetypal characters such as the braggart warrior and the greedy parasite, a seminal plot based on greed and deception, and the powerful, inventive verbal style that for two thousand years has been the playwright's chief claim to critical attention. For all those reasons, the Curculiois an excellent introduciton to an important and appealing ancient ariter. In the revision of the American Philogical Association edition, the introduction and notes have been expanded and a vocabulary has been added. The edition retains the standard scholarly Latin text, so that the book will be useful even to advanced readers of Plautus.
