Synopsis:
All six of the Roman dramatist's comedies—from The Girl from Andros, the first romantic comedy ever written, to the socially sophisticated The Brothers—show why Terence became a model for playwrights from the Renaissance onward. Also included are The Self-Tormentor, The Eunuch, Phormio, and The Mother-in-Law.

Book Description: Penguin Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 1976. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Revised ed. 198 x 129 mm. Brand New Book. The Roman dramatist Terence (c. 186-159 BC) adapted many of his comedies from Greek sources, rendering them suitable for audiences of his own time by introducing subtler characterization and more complex plots. In his romantic play, The Girl from Andros Terence portrays a love affair saved by a startling discovery. The Self-Tormentor focuses on a man s remorse after sending his son to war, and The Eunuch depicts a case of mistaken identity. Phormio is as rich in intrigue as a French farce, while The Mother-in-Law shows two families striving to save a marriage and The Brothers contrasts strict and lenient upbringings. With their tight plots and spare dialogue, Terence gave his plays a sense of humanity that became a model in the Renaissance and greatly influenced Moliere. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780140443240

Book Description: Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. The Roman dramatist Terence (c. 186-159 B. C. ) is one of the most interesting Latin authors. Although his professed aim was to adapt Greek New Comedy for the Roman stage, he presented sympathetically the stock figures of comedy as human beings interacting on each other, and confronted with the domestic problems that are still ours today. The six comedies in this volume are his complete output, and range in mood from light romantic comedy through elaborate intrigue to the themes handled with wit and urbanity which were so much admired by Moliere. They were preserved in manuscripts and studied all through the Middle Ages for the polish and elegance of their Latin style, and from the Renaissance onwards have been a lasting influence on the Western European comedy of manners.
