Plautus The Pot of Gold and Other Plays


The ancient Roman writer Plautus is one of the most important playwrights in Western Civilization. «The Pot of Gold and Other Plays» captures his genius with a collection of famous plays performed in the Roman theatre. Plautus adapted most of his plays from earlier Greek stories, making him essential in helping preserve the history and integrity of Greek theatre. What makes Plautus extraordinary, though, is that he kept the essence of the Greek shows while evolving the wordplay and language to fit the more modern Roman tastes. He refused to let the renovations of the story be compromised by ultimate life-lessons or other philosophical teachings; instead, Plautus focused on the every-day life of the every-day man. The plays also contained some of the earliest slapstick humor, making them significant in the history of the theatre. The plays contain well-known archetypes as well, such as the clever slave and the lusty older man. The influence of his works was not lost during history, as both Shakespeare and Moliere cite Plautus as major influences on their writing style. The famous wordplay and comedic relationships that typify Shakespeare were directly inspired by Plautus' works. «The Pot of Gold and Other Plays» will not only entertain with humor and originality, but will expose the reader to an important part of Western history.

Plautus Selected Plays


This collection of plays captures the comedic genius of Plautus, one of the most important playwrights from classical Roman antiquity. Plautus adapted most of his plays from earlier Greek stories, making him essential in helping to preserve the history and integrity of Greek theatre. What makes Plautus extraordinary, though, is that he kept the essence of the Greek shows while evolving the language to fit contemporary Roman tastes. He refused to let the renovations of the story be compromised by ultimate life-lessons or other philosophical teachings; instead, Plautus focused on the everyday life of his fellow Roman citizens. His plays also contained some of the earliest examples of slapstick humor, making them significant in the history of comedic theatre. Through the use of clever wordplay and by drawing upon well-known archetypes, Plautus created a type of theater that would influence such future masters of the stage as Moliere and Shakespeare. Collected together here the reader will find a representative collection of eight plays in translations by Paul Nixon and Henry Thomas Riley.

Molière The Miser and Other Plays


This edition of comedies by Molière includes: «The School for Wives,» a comedy of infidelity and his first great success, «The Critique of the School for Wives,» «Don Juan,» «The Miser,» and «The Imaginary Invalid,» the play that Molière appeared in only hours before his death. Renowned for his comedic genius and ability to portray a true sense of humanity in his characters, Molière has been delighting and intriguing audiences since the seventeenth century, at which time they pleased King Louis XIV and changed the face of French comic drama. «The Miser,» a representative product of Molière's many-sided genius, is a comedy of manners loosely based on «The Pot of Gold,» by the Roman playwright Plautus. In each of these plays, Molière weaves a dark thread of tragedy into his comic visions of love, society, and the comfortable bourgeois home.

Sophocles Electra and Other Plays


Only seven plays of the Ancient Greek dramatist Sophocles have survived to today. Sophocles is best known for his trilogy of dramas known as the “Three Theban Plays”, which is comprised of the plays “Oedipus Rex”, “Oedipus at Colonus”, and “Antigone”. The remaining four extant plays are collected together in this volume of “Electra and Other Plays”. First in this collection we find “Ajax”, the oldest of Sophocles plays which unfolds the destiny of the warrior Ajax after the Trojan War. Second there is “The Trachinian Maidens”, which gives an insightful account of the neglect that the wife of Hercules, Deianeira, and her family suffer as a result of her husband’s frequent and lengthy adventures. Thirdly we find the title drama, “Electra” which tells the classic tale of a young daughter’s revenge for her father’s death. Lastly in this collection there is, “Philoctetes”, which follows the life of a unique and important man through his trials and triumphs. In this volume the reader will find more evidence of why Sophocles is considered one of the greatest dramatists from classical antiquity. This edition follows the verse translations of Lewis Campbell and includes a biographical afterword.

Aristophanes Lysistrata and Other Plays


Greek playwright Aristophanes spins wonderful stories combining politics, satire, and classic Greek gods in this collection of «Lysistrata and Other Plays.» «Lysistrata» focuses on the women of Greece whose husbands leave for the Peloponnesian War. The women do not care about the war as much as they care about missing their husbands; Lysistrata also insists that men rarely listen to women's reasoning and exclude their opinions on matters of the state. In retaliation, the women of Greece organize a strike, refusing to give their husbands sex until both sides agree to cease fighting. What makes the play tongue-in-cheek is that the men become more upset with their wives than they do with their enemies of war. It was also notable due to its positive portrayal of a woman's rationality in a male-dominated society. Its comedic portrayal of the dumbfounded men has made it a favorite of theatre lovers for years. The other plays, «The Clouds» and «The Acharnians,» are both remembered for their absurd humor and their importance to the Greek theatre. Aristophanes' intelligence and wit is present in all of his works, and the plays contained in «Lysistrata and Other Plays» will captivate and entertain readers for many more years to come.

Oscar Wilde The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays


“The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays” brings together Oscar Wilde’s most popular plays which first appeared between 1891 and 1895. Despite his relatively short theatrical career, Wilde’s plays have enjoyed a sustained popularity. A classic satire of Victorian society, “The Importance of Being Earnest” is one of the author’s most frequently performed works. The play trivializes its characters, who through a series of deceptions pretend to be people that they are not in order to escape the burdensome demands of social conventions. “Salome”, originally written in French, is a retelling of the Biblical story of Salome, who requests the head of John the Baptist, Jokanaan in the play, for dancing the dance of the seven veils. “A Woman of No Importance” concerns Mrs. Arbuthnot, a woman who has been scorned by society for having an illicit affair and conceiving a child out of wedlock. “An Ideal Husband” is the story of an up-and-coming politician with a secret past and the blackmail scheme to keep that secret quiet. “Lady Windermere’s Fan” is the tale of Lady Windermere who suspects her husband of infidelity when he takes an interest in Mrs. Erlynne. Largely a collection of high society satires “The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays” brilliantly exhibits Wilde’s dramatic deft. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

GEORGE BERNARD SHAW Pygmalion and Other Plays


“Pygmalion and Other Plays” is a collection of eleven of George Bernard Shaw’s most studied and performed plays. The impact made by the Irish playwright, political activist, and Noble Prize-winner on Western theater and culture cannot be overstated. The plays contained in this collection showcase his genius and creativity and it is not hard to understand why his works continue to influence generations of writers and actors. Included are such frequently adapted classics as “Arms and the Man”, a biting and witty critique of the often falsely romantic depiction of war and the empty nobility of soldiers, “Candida”, a surprisingly modern story of a strong and intelligent woman who is the true force behind her husband’s success, “Pygmalion”, the classic and often adapted story of the transformation of Eliza Doolittle from a poor flower girl into a sophisticated lady at the hands of Henry Higgins and Colonel Pickering, “Saint Joan”, the sensitive and nuanced portrayal of the iconic Joan of Arc which shows her as a complex, misunderstood, and deeply human character, as well as many more brilliant dramatic plays. Shaw’s works continue to entertain and captivate audiences with their insights into human nature and the shortcomings of our modern society. This edition includes a biographical afterword.

Aristophanes The Frogs and Other Plays


Along with Sophocles and Euripides, Aristophanes is considered one of the three great Greek playwrights. Only eleven of his nearly forty plays survive in their entirety to this day. «The Frogs and Other Plays» includes the titular play along «The Wasps» and «The Thesmophoriazusae.» Produced the year after the death of Euripides, «The Frogs» laments the decay of Greek tragedy which Aristophanes attributed to that writer. It is an admirable example of the brilliance of his style, and of that mingling of wit and poetry with rollicking humor and keen satirical point which is his chief characteristic. Here, as elsewhere, he stands for tradition against innovation of all kinds, whether in politics, religion, or art. In «The Wasps» Aristophanes pokes satirical fun at the demagogue Cleon and the Athenian law courts that provide Cleon with his power. «The Thesmophoriazusae» is concerned with the schemes of a group of women at the Thesmophoria, an annual fertility celebration dedicated to Demeter, who angered by Euripides portrayal of women in his plays as mad, murderous, and sexually depraved, plan to exact revenge upon him.
