The mother in law by Terence( Book )

Phormio makes a living by performing services for richer people. The plot is set in Athens, and revolves around the love affairs of two young men, Phaedria and Antipho. Phaedria is in love with a harp-player called Pamphila, but doesn't have the money to buy her from her owner Dorio; Antipho wishes to marry a free but poor girl called Phanium. By clever legal wrangling, Phormio manages to help both young men to obtain their wishes, and in addition extracts a large sum of money from the two fathers

Adelphoe by Terence( Book )

210 editions published between 1494 and 2017 in 9 languages and held by 1,278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Micio is an aging, easygoing Athenian bachelor whose strict and hardworking brother Demea permits him to adopt and rear Aeschinus, one of Demea's two sons. Unlike his brother, Micio is a permissive parent, choosing to let pass many of Aeschinus's small extravagances on the assumption that children are more likely to remain bound to their duty by ties of kindness than by those of fear. Micio comes to wonder if his policy raising his son Ctesipho is better
Eunuchus by Terence( Book )

121 editions published between 1494 and 2015 in 11 languages and held by 1,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When first performed, The Eunuch was a great success. Today with its larger-than-life characters (particularly the boastful soldier Thraso and the toady Gnatho), its farcical and exaggerated humour and its vigorous action, it strikes the modern reader as the funniest and most Plautine of Terence's six comedies. It is also a play of effective and entertaining contrasts, particularly that between the two brothers Phaedria and Chaerea. Their very different attitudes to love and romance provide one of the play's chief points of interest, while Thais presents yet another picture of love, that of the professional courtesan. The fact that Thais, Thraso and the slave Parmeno are not quite the stereotypes we might expect to find in this type of play adds yet more to an amusing and thought-provoking comedy."--BOOK JACKET

Terence achieved in his brief twenty-six years a standard of stylistic perfection and artistic restraint that ranked him, along with Plautus, as the greatest of the Roman comic playwrights. He was, at the very least, a gifted translator and adaptor, having used Greek New Comedies as the basis for all six of his extant plays. How far his own contribution exceeded that of simple translation is difficult to say, but we know that the Latin, undeniably his, was so faultlessly styled that his work served as a textbook for scholars and grammarians for hundreds of years.Terence had a considerable impact on the Revival of Letters; his comedies were studied and were frequently adapted into new works by such men as Steele, Chapman, and, most famously, Moliire. Indeed, had there been no Terence, it is doubtful that the Comedy of Manners could have arisen when it did, and all comic writing for the stage, from Moilire through the Restoration drama to the present day, would be diminished for lack of him. Appropriately, the language of this translation is from the Restoration. Graves has based his version on the one made in 1689 by Laurence Echard; he has corrected inaccuracies, eliminated defects and obscurities, but retained the period tone.Including in this book are the major comedies: The Fair Andrian, The Mother-In-Law, The Self-Tormentor, The Eunuch, The Tricks of Phormio and The Brothers. A close reading of Terence is a fine corrective to any idea that may still be current, about the glory that was Greece and grandeur that was Rome during the Hellenistic period. It is an assurance that in some respects at least, this age is not depraved at all

Terence's comedies are adaptations from Greek New Comedy, which flourished in Athens at the end of the fourth century and in the first half of the third, and was so called to distinguish it from the Old Comedy of the fifth century, and the Middle Comedy, a less important transition stage between the two. Old and New Comedy are two totally different dramatic forms, reflecting the different conditions of life in the two periods
