[GLAM 340] Roman Drama
This course features close reading of representative plays of Plautus, Terence, and Seneca. We consider each figure as a possible representative of and critical commentator upon his age, and we investigate the dramas for their attitudes about politics, gender, history, and performance. Detailed attention is also paid to the inner world of the playwrights as poets, dramatists, and theatrical craftsmen.
