Overview

All six of the Roman dramatist’s comedies—from The Girl from Andros, the first romantic comedy ever written, to the socially sophisticated The Brothers—show why Terence became a model for playwrights from the Renaissance onward. Also included are The Self-Tormentor, The Eunuch, Phormio, and The Mother-in-Law.
