In English translations that achieve a lively readability without sacrificing the dramatic and comic impact of the original Latin, this volume presents all six comedies: The Girl from Andros (Andria), The Self-Tormentor (Heautontimorumenos), The Eunuch (Eunouchus), Phormio, The Brothers (Adelphoe), and Her Husband's Mother(Hecyra)."@en ;
   schema:description "The plays were performed for Romans from every walk of life, who crowded the improvised theaters on festival days. Before his death by shipwreck at age thirty-six--on a voyage to Greece in search of manuscripts by Menander--he had become one of Rome's most popular comedic playwrights."@en ;
   schema:description "Publius Terentius Afer--our Terence--was a slave from North Africa, brought as a boy from Carthage and sold to a wealthy Roman named Marcus Terentius Lucanus. Recognizing the boy's natural charm and genius, Marcus Terentius had Terence educated along with his own children and eventually set the gifted young man free. Terence took to his education in Latin and Greek literature and was soon writing plays of his own--Roman comedies in Latin poetry, based on Greek models."@en ;
   schema:description "Terence's engaging portrayals of the "generation gap" and other timeless subjects conquered an unruly Roman populace--and, in these translations, will captivate modern readers."@en ;
   schema:description "To Terence, "nothing human is foreign." His comedies revel in the complex relationships and amusing cross-purposes of typical "worthies" and their interfering friends. Lovers survive nerve-wracking comic trials. Young men, helped by their stoic slaves, reconcile with angry fathers and uncles. Tutors, lawyers, and middlemen--the "unworthies"--Are content to play both ends against the middle."@en ;
