    ENGLISH The plot of this work is the most complex among the comedies by Terence It gathers and combines almost all the elements in the other comedies confrontation between fathers and sons, the cunning of slaves, the lost and found daughter, with the addition of a character, the parasite Phormio, who gives unity to the plot and solves all their problems, in a way not always satisfactory for the fathers.ESPA OL El argumento de esta obra es el m s complejo de las comedias de Terencio, pues re ENGLISH The plot of this work is the most complex among the comedies by Terence It gathers and combines almost all the elements in the other comedies confrontation between fathers and sons, the cunning of slaves, the lost and found daughter, with the addition of a character, the parasite Phormio, who gives unity to the plot and solves all their problems, in a way not always satisfactory for the fathers.ESPA OL El argumento de esta obra es el m s complejo de las comedias de Terencio, pues re ne y combina casi todos los elementos de las dem s comedias el enfrentamiento entre padres e hijos, la astucia de los esclavos, la hija perdida y hallada, y a ade el personaje del par sito Formi n, que da unidad a la obra y resuelve todos los problemas, de manera no siempre satisfactoria para los padres

    Yet another busy Roman play with little substance Phormio is the most interesting character, the rest are mostly one dimensional and leaden Another play with mistaken identity at the core, but so slight when compared to the Greeks or later Comedy.

    This piece was my last attempt to read the New Comedy I just feel thatmodern ancient comedy is theboring it is Only story is now left in the book Sophisticated one but not intersting for modern reader As for jokes I did not see anyone I used to smile throughout all Aristophanes plays I even laughed few times but now It is just some story told I got bored after the third I survived onethird and than gave up.
