The Comedies of Terence

Frederick Clayton and Matthew Leigh

Liverpool University Press

The Comedies of Terence' presents entirely new translations, in rhyming couplets, of all six extant plays by this Latin author, dating from the period 166-60 BC. An excellent literary translation, the versions remain very close to Terence's texts; consequently they will be not only enjoyable to the general reader, but also great value to the student of classics. The Introduction is in itself a major contribution to our understanding of Terence. Matthew Leigh, who has written the Introduction to this volume, first became interested in Terence while serving as Lecturer in Classics and Ancient History at the University of Exeter. He is currently Fellow and Tutor in Classics at St Anne's College, Oxford. He is author of 'Lucan: Spectacle and Engagement' (Oxford, 1997) and 'Comedy and the Rise of Rome' (Oxford, 2004).
