The Comedies

Terence
Peter Brown

Oxford World's Classics

  • Terence is one of the founding fathers of European comic drama whose plays have influenced comic plotting to the present day. This new translation brings out their quality as works written for performance.
  • Up-to-date Introduction helps the reader place Terence in the context of Latin literature and the history of comic drama as well as considering ancient attitudes to rape and its prominence in the plays.
  • Helpful explanatory notes gloss allusions and stagecraft.
  • The inclusion of marginal line-numbering to the Latin text makes the edition especially useful for students.
