Book Cover
A Companion to Terence

A Companion to Terence offers the first comprehensive collection of essays on Terence in English. It includes a detailed study of Terence's plays, situating them in their socio-historical context and exploring their reception from the Classical through late antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, to present-day literature and performance.

Each chapter discusses key issues in Terence, including Terence's relationship with his Greco-Roman models, his language and style, the question of performance and dramatic technique, and the socio-political background that shapes the themes, characters, structures, and cultural-political concerns.

A Companion to Terence is a useful research tool for the growing number of scholars, students, and critics of Terence and Roman Comedy.
