Translating Classical Playsis a selection of edited papers by J. Michael Walton published and delivered between 1997 and 2014. Of the four sections, each with a new introduction, the first two cover the history of translating classical drama into English and specific issues relating to translation for stage performance. The latter two are concerned with the three Greek tragedians, and the Greek and Roman writers of old and new comedy, ending with the hitherto unpublished text of a Platform Lecture given at the National Theatre in London comparing the plays of Plautus with Sondheim''sA Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum.The volume is an invaluable resource for anyone involved in staging or translating classical drama.

J. Michael Walton is Emeritus Professor of Drama at the University of Hull, UK.
