Book Description:
Plautus and Terence are the only two Roman writers of comedies whose work has survived. So popular were Plautus' farces that his name alone was enough to pull in the crowds; Terence's dramas appealed to a more sophisticated audience and were regularly revived in later times. This volume brings together Plautus' The Haunted House (Mostellaria) in which the intrigues of a clever slave provide a virtuoso comic role; his Casina, or A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Wedding, a fast moving romp, full of joie de vivre; Terence's The Eunuch, his greatest success and closest in style to the plays of Plautus; and his Brothers, a very modern comedy about how to bring up children. J. Michael Walton is professor of drama at the University of Hull, England. He has published four books on classical theater.
