The editors wanted to make the comic drama come alive for a new audience....the goal was to use the complete Dyskolos (Grouch) and reconstruct the fragments of survivng plays by using as models copies by Terence and Plautus and fragments of other plays by Menander to give the sense of what New Comedy was and how it influenced the comedy of generations to come.

This book, following the modern trend towards "relating to the people" loses all overview of Menander. Upon reading this book, one does not ask himself the age-old question, "Does Menander imitate life, or does life imitate Menander?"
