Amphitryon

Translated by Richard Wilbur

Paperback £14.99

An English verse translation of Molière's late, elegant comedy.

Molière's Amphitryon is based on a play by Plautus. In Molière's version, Jupiter's love affairs allude to those of the French king.

'Wilbur has the uncanny ability to create English versions that never feel like translations. They read and play as if they were originally written in English.' - Dana Gioia
