CRITICISM.—Good characterizations of Plautus, from the literary point of view, are given by Sellar in his Roman Poets of the Republic, and Wight Duff, in his Literary History of Rome (1909). A summary of recent critical works bearing on the text and interpretation is given by Seyffert in his admirable reports (in Bursian's Jahresberichte fiber die Fortschritte der klassischen Altertumswissenschaft), 1883-1885, 1886-1889, 1890-1894, continued by Lindsay, 1895-1906. Important contributions to textual criticism are contained in Ritschl Parerga (1845), Neue Plautinische Excurse (1869), and his collected Opuscula philologica; Studemund, Studia in priscos scriptures latinos (vol. i. 1873, vol. ii. 1891); Langen, Beitroge (1877) and Plautinische Studien (1886) ; Leo, Plautinische Forschungen (1895); Lindsay, Codex Turnebi (1898). Bentley's Plautine Emendations were published by Sonnenschein partly in his editionof the Captivi (1880), partly in the Anecdota oxoniensia series (1883).
