Segal, Erich


"[A] hearty, sprawling book, 25 years in the making, puts all his [Segal's] skills as a popular novelist, screenwriter and professor of classics to work on surveying the evolution of comic drama in the West...It manages to recover the tang of the Western comic tradition, an extraordinary achievement in the case of plays over 2,500 years old....He's generous with information about theaters and stagecraft, and his original translations capture the human appetite for carnival so dynamically they practically pop off the page."Segal, Erich is the author of 'Death of Comedy' with ISBN 9780674012479 and ISBN 067401247X.
