This is the first ever full-scale commentary in English on Eunuchus (The Eunuch) by the Roman comic playwright Terence. This was his most successful play in his lifetime and one of his most popular plays in the Renaissance period, though it has been surprisingly neglected by modern commentators. The book provides a thorough examination of the literary and dramatic qualities of the play, and also offers a close study of Terence's Latin in comparison with that of his predecessor Plautus.
