Menander (c. BC) was the foremost innovator of Greek New Comedy, a dramatic style that moved away from the fantastical to focus upon the problems of ordinary Athenians. This collection contains the full text of 'Old Cantankerous' (Dyskolos), the only surviving complete example of New Comedy, as well as fragments from works including.

Menander has 49 books on Goodreads with ratings. Menander’s most popular book is The Plays and Fragments. Menander was highly regarded in antiquity and his plots, set in Greece, were adapted for the Roman world by Plautus and Terence.

Geoffrey Arnott's new Loeb edition is in three volumes. Volume I contains six plays, including the only complete one extant, Dyskolos (The Peevish Fellow), which won first prize in Athens in BCE, and Menander book Expaton 3/5(1). Menander, (born c. —died c. bce), Athenian dramatist whom ancient critics considered the supreme poet of Greek New Comedy—i.e., the last flowering of Athenian stage comedy.

During his life, his success was limited; although he wrote more than plays, he won only eight victories at Athenian dramatic festivals. For eight centuries after his death Menander was the third most popular poet in the Greek-speaking world, and his plays, through Roman imitations and adaptations, engendered a tradition of European light drama that extends to our own day.

But it is only since that some of the actual texts of Menander's plays have been rediscovered, mostly in Egyptian papyri. Menander (?/3–/1 BCE), the dominant figure in New Comedy, wrote over plays, of which one complete play, substantial portions of six others, and smaller but interesting fragments have been recovered.

The complete play, Dyskolos (The Peevish Fellow), won first prize in Athens in BCE. Menander was instrumental in turning the tragic theme of human ignorance into Menander book comic device and inventing a plot type with enormous impact on the western tradition.

This book provides original insights into his achievements within their historical and intellectual context. Category: History Menander.

Those corrections and supplements whose author is not named in. For others, it makes the book much more difficult to use and only encourages students in the reprehensible practice of ignoring the basis on which a text is constituted. This is a particular issue for a poet like Menander, for many of whose plays no consensus on the order of papyrus fragments yet : Benjamin Cartlidge.

Menander (; Greek: Μένανδρος, Menandros; c. /41 – c. BC) was a Greek dramatist and the best-known representative of Athenian New Comedy. [1] He was the author of more than a hundred comedies, and took the prize at the Lenaia festival eight times. [2] His record at the City Dionysia is unknown but may well have been similarly spectacular.

The Dyskolos treats a standard literary theme, the disapproval by a parent of a child's choice in marriage. Critics have pointed out that Menander's overriding theme, however, is the daily events. Menander (ca. BC), the best-known representative of Athenian New Comedy, was the son of well-to-do parents; his father Diopeithes is identified by some with the Athenian general and governor of the Thracian Chersonese known from the speech of Demosthenes De Chersoneso/5.

This won the prize in BC More about Menander. This book argues that New Comedy has a far richer performance texture than has previously been recognised. Offering close readings of all the major plays of Menander, it shows how intertextuality - the sustained dialogue of New Comedy performance with the diverse ideological, philosophical, literary and theatrical discourses of contemporary polis culture - is crucial in creating semantic depth Cited by: 1.
