It is always nice when the translation of a verse original is likewise rendered into verse. The three translators use modern free verse, the best compromise of presenting a Latin verse work in English while preserving the lyricism of the original.
This edition, which first appeared in 1974, starts out with an introduction by Smith Palmer Bovie. I had the good fortune to have studied under professor Bovie at Rutgers in the 1980s and still recall his insightful (yet playful) presentations of Roman literature. This volume includes all six surviving complete plays by Terence: The Girl from Andros, translated by Palmer Bovie; The Self-Tormentor, also translated by Dr. Bovie; The Eunuch, translated by Douglass Parker; Phormio, also translated by Dr. Parker; The Brothers, translated by Constance Carrier; and Her Husband's Mother, also translated by Constance Carrier. Each play is prefaced by a foreword by the translator.
