...Magis...unicust...pater. Crisi dell'autorità senile

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[automatically translated] The comic dynamic built around the relationship between old and young, fathers and sons, touches an absolute summit, in the Casina of Plautus, in the absurd joke with which the senex, to impose its will, is proclaimed 'more unique Father' how uniquely He is his own son. The undue invasion of the field, regardless even of relationship patterns, shows the aberration which can reach a bad father exercised imperium. As it is also the case of Demifone in Mercator, unworthy subject of authority in wanting to solve it to your advantage amorous conflict with Carino.
