  • Understanding Terence. Princeton University Press, Princeton, n.d.(>1986). XIV,231p. Original burgundy cloth with dust wrps. (Rare thus). 'Goldberg has given us a didactic Terence, with ethics and character the central principles of his comedy. It is not the only view, but Goldberg's analysis is both subtle and learned. It might have helped the general reader if individual plays had been more clearly marked by subsections or subtitles to the chapters in which they are discussed, and if the technical stylistic chapters on prologue and diction had been grouped together at the end of the volume, Let the reader not be daunted, however. This is an important and intelligent book, and deserves the careful reading it requires.' (DAVID KONSTAN). From the library of Professor Carl Deroux. € 65.00 (Antiquarian) ISBN: 9780691035864
