      the translation i read was called "a funny thing happened on the way to the wedding." as i understood it, there should be a lot of slapstick physical comedy that just didn't translate onto the page, so reading it was kinda "meh"

      Comedia latina que he leído como parte de la asignatura "La Cultura Grecolatina a través de sus textos literarios". La obra gira alrededor de una chica, Cásina, que sin embargo no interviene en ningún momento, y los deseos de diferentes personajes de casarla. Es una obra muy breve y que se lee con rapidez.

      After having read whole greek comedy (which unfortunately nowadays contains only twelve plays ) I jumped to the Roman one with great expectations. Oh boy what a dissapointment. Casina seems quite modern. If someone took Casina, put it before me and tell me that it was written in Renesance I would believe him. It has quite well work-out story with nice premise.

      Siempre he sido más lectora de clásicos griegos que latinos. He leído algunas tragedias griegas clásicas y comedias de Aristófanes pero ésta ha sido la primera comedia latina que he tenido entre mis manos y lo cierto es que es muy divertida, muy fácil de leer, nada de descripciones farragosas ni diálogos altisonantes evocando a los dioses. Una edición muy cuidada, aunque personalmente prefiero el final que el mismo Plauto dio a su obra.

      Dilimize Nurullah Ataç tarafından orjinal dilinden değil; Fransızca'dan çevirilen bu kitabın 1965-İstanbul ikinci baskısını okudum. Fazla sayıda olduğu için göze çarpan yazım hatalarını bir kenara bırakırsak; Plautus'un ilk okuduğum tiyatrosu İkizler'in yanında daha sönük kaldığını söyleyebilirim.

      Read in Latin Survey and really enjoyed discussing it in class. Hilarious, but also very (very) obscene.
