Plauto. Menecmi

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Two twin brothers, a rich wife and a young lover, a faithful servant and an unreliable parasite, a secret feast and a stolen cloak: these are the ingredients that give life to the Menaechmi comedy, which is structured around the scheme of misunderstanding. The two Menecmi of the title, identical for a strange game of destiny even in the name, are on the scene - almost paradoxically - one unaware of the other and, in this way, generate confusion between the various characters of the piece, feeding, with misunderstandings and ambiguity, a fun series of gags in an extraordinary comedy of errors.
