Description - The Comedies of Machiavelli by Niccolo Machiavelli
This bilingual edition includes all three examples of Machiavelli's comedic art: sparkling translations of his farcical masterpiece, The Mandrake; of his version of Terence's The Woman From Andros; and of his Plautus-inspired Clizia-works whose genre afforded Machiavelli a unique vehicle not only for entertaining audiences but for examining virtu amid the twists and turns of fortuna.
