30157 AT MoWeFr 03:00 PM-03:50 PM 00337 CL Roman Comedy   No recitation.   Enroll Limit 15 Posssanza, D 

This course is an introduction to the language, themes and conventions of Roman Comedy. We will read two comic scripts, the “Amphitruo” by Plautus, who was active as a playwright between 204 BC and 184 BC, and the “Adelphoe” (“Brothers”) by Terence who was active in the 160s BC. In the “Amphitruo” gods and mortals act out a plot involving disguise, deception, mistaken identity, and divine adultery, all with a good dose of slapstick. Terence’s “Adelphoe” is a more subdued comedy. It deals with fathers and sons, the right way to raise children and the ageless problems of young love. Plautus and Terence will transform your experience of the Latin language and Latin literature.

Prerequisite(s): PREQ: LATIN 1300 or 1302

This course is offered infrequently.
