Philolaches is a good for nothing so-and-so: he seems to live purely to spend his father's cash, or, when he cannot get it, to borrow against it. Everything he loves is paid for by someone else's efforts, including the lady of his dreams, ex-courtesan Philematium. Now while his father is away earning money, Philolaches is spending it all on one big house party. But when his father returns unexpectedly, Philolaches is stumped. Luckily, his trusty slave Tranio has a plan: he bundles his master's guests into a closet, and distracts the father with a tall tale that the house his haunted. As foolish as Philolaches is, so is Tranio quick-witted, building yarn upon fib upon lie to keep his master's father in the dark

3 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This great poem stands with Virgil's Aeneid as one of the vital and enduring achievements of Latin literature ... Based on the tenets of Epicurean philosophy, On the Nature of Things asserts that matter is composed of an infinite number of small particles; that even the soul, like the body, is made up of these atoms and dissolves painlessly after death; that there is no afterlife and therefore no cause for fear; and that the universe operates without the aid or attention of gods."--Page 4 of cover
The eunuch by Terence( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Phaedria has been thrown out of his lover Thais's house. And, to add insult to injury, he had paid for his right to be there. He does not know what he should do - he fears losing his place in the pecking order to his rival Thraso - and has only his trusted companion, and slave, Parmeno, for advice. Parmeno, who knows what freedoms can be bought with gold, suggests a gift: a slave girl, and a eunuch. But when Phaedria's brother Chaerea falls in love with another girl (a gift from Thraso hoping to woo Thais), he conspires to have himself substituted for the eunuch, and placed inside Thais's house, causing untold complications for Thais, Phaedria and, not least, himself

Menaechmi by Titus Maccius Plautus( Book )

6 editions published between 1949 and 1983 in English and Latin and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Menaechmi is one of Plautus' liveliest and most entertaining comedies, the main inspiration for Shakespeare's The Comedy of Errors. Dr Gratwick's edition brings new light to bear on the interpretation of the play and on Plautus' place in the development of European comedy. Central to his treatment is the fact that Plautus was a dramatist who wrote to be heard rather than to be read. The various metres which he subtly and flexibly exploited for musical and dramatic effect are here explained in a way that challenges many received views but also offers the student practical assistance in grappling with the technical problems involved both on paper and in performance. The text has been newly constituted on the basis of a complete reappraisal of the manuscript tradition in the light of scholarship since the Renaissance. In preparing this edition Dr Gratwick has had in mind the needs of university students, but classical scholars in general will find much of importance to them
