Title: Captivi. With introduction and notes by W.M. Lindsay.
Description: Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1962. 2nd rev.ed. 120p. Cloth. 'This little book, written a generation ago, for beginners and by a beginner, has had so much (unmerited) success, that it seems worth while to re-write it and bring it up to date; for the 'Captivi' is a play which, more then any other of Plautus, may suitably put into a schoolboy's hands. Since schoolmasters usually find the Plautus-lecture the best opportunity for teaching the etymology and structure 0f Latin words, the numerous notes on this subjec have been retained. But, after all, 'the play's the thing', and this new edition's chief aim is to enable the novice, plodding a weary way through the translation, to appreciate the apt diction, the jovial humour, even the lively rhythm of this King of Comedy. If my readers get as much fun out of the play as I do, then i have not failed.' (W.M. LINDSAY, Preface, p.3). Gew/weight: up to 1 Kg.
