Four Roman Comedies - The Haunted House & Casina or A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Wedding  & The Eunuch & Brothers $27.99

Plautus & Terence

Published by Methuen

The comedies of Plautus and Terence are all that survive to us of a great age of Roman comedy theatre

Collected here are four important plays that offer a unique insight into everyday life in ancient Rome, whilst maintaining a pivotal influence over the theatre of the present day

In The Haunted House the intrigues of a clever slave are played out in a virtuoso comic role

Plautus's Casina is a fast-moving romp through the sexual mores of the Roman upper classes

Terence's more sophisticated The Eunuch, and The Brothers are perhaps closer in sentiment to the attitudes of modern comedy and reflect situations with universal appeal

The volume is edited and introduced by J.Michael Walton, Professor of Drama at the University of Hull
