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), Phormios, The Brothers (Adelphoe), and Her Husband's Mother (Hecyra).

"Terence's comedies sparkle and delight." -- Tina Howe.

"In the gifted hands of these translators, Roman comedy turns to English comedy of the finest." -- Robert Fagles, Princeton University.
