  • Storia del teatro latino. Francesco Vallardi, Milano, 1957. 287p. Cardboard. Pages a bit yellowed. 'Ample ground has been covered, and it has been covered so attentively and systematically that the Italian undergraduate and general reader, for whom the work is apparently designed, can be said to have been well served. (...) On the whole, as befits the scope and purpose of the series, the author's attitude is fairly objective and uncontroversial, even orthodox. (...) The reader is generally made clearly aware of disputable questions and given full opportunity to consider rival views. (...) Among many estimable things in the book are the discussion of the importance for Plautus of the 'Atellana', the treatment of the fice-acts question, the defence of the originality of Latin comedy and parts of the fairly long chapter of detailed notes referred by the numbers in the text of the chapters.' (W.S. MAGUINNESS in The Journal of Roman Studies, 1959, pp.207-08). From the library of the late Prof. Dr. Tony Reekmans. € 37.50 (Antiquarian)
