"Terence's Brothers was put on in Rome in 160 B.C. when 'captive Greece was capturing her ruffian conqueror and bringing style to barnyard Latium', when Cato the Elder, still vigorous at 74, was defending 'the ways of our Roman ancestors' with pen and voice, and fourteen years before the destruction of Carthage and Corinth which marked a new epoch in Roman history. It is the latest surviving example of comoedia palliata, and for sustained verve, variety, characterization, and substance it is perhaps the most accomplished of the genre as we know it, as well as a document of the blending of Greek and Roman not yet quite complete. The play deals with a perennial domestic problem - how fathers should relate to teenage children - and raises the wider question of ends and means in education. Latin text with facing-page translation.

Review:

This is a very important work. It must be noticed not simply as an edition for young students, but as a challenge to most peoples received notions about Terence: his text, his metre, and his ways of dealing with his material. Everybody interested at all in New Comedy should acquire a copy at once." (Classical Review, 1987)
