AUHAGEN, U., (ed.),
Studien zu Plautus' Epidicus.
Narr Verlag, Tübingen, 2001. 349p. Bound. Series: Scriptoralia, 125. This is a time of great interest to Plautinists. The plays are receiving scholarly discussion at Urbino in Italy (under Cesare Questa) and Freiburg in Germany (under Eckard Lefèvre). The Italian project is the more precisely organised. Each play in alphabetical order is the subject of an annual conference at Sarsina, the poet's birthplace, and the papers given there are published as Lecturae Plautinae Sarsinates. Five such conferences have been held, taking us to Captivi. Even more exciting, the plan of Questa and his colleagues is to produce a new edition of each play, in whatever order. Casina is the first (Urbino: QuattroVenti, 2001), edited by Questa himself; Asinaria, Curculio, Amphitruo are to come next. This will eventually release us from the tyranny of Lindsay's hundred-year-old Oxford Text. The Freiburg volumes are published in ScriptOralia, a series dedicated to the interface between written and oral literature.'(MALCOLM M. WILLCOK in Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2002.01.22). A.o.: W.
