Texte du rabat

From one vantage point, "The Scruffy Scoundrels" would appear to be no more than a series of unrelated scenes and sketches grouped around a highly conventionalized and loosely structured love plot: the arrival of Pilucca and Tindaro in Rome, abounding in topical references; the appearance of the two ragged brothers, so arbitrarily related to the rest of the events of the play; the love squabble between two servants leading to Nuta's memorably comic invective; the stock farcical routines of the Mirandola episodes; the long pathetic tale of Tindaro, so little of which actually takes place on the stage. There is a sense, however, in which each scene contains its own ethos and milieu and hails from a particular comic genre, each with its own topoi and character types. This efficient management of plot is simply a measure of Caro's comic genius.
