Menander: Samia

Bloomsbury Ancient Comedy Companions

Matthew Wright

Rediscovered through papyrus finds in the 20th century, The Woman from Samos is a rare survival of 4th-century BCE Greek comedy and well illustrates Menander’s neat plot construction. Wright provides a scene-by-scene reading through the play’s five acts, which follow a series of mishaps and misunderstandings leading up to the young lovers’ wedding that forms the happy ending.
