CLASSICS 362: Roman Comedy: The Rise and Fall and Rise of a Popular Genre

Roman comedy was a truly popular genre, enjoyed by audiences of every background. Comic texts are used as evidence for many (contradictory) reconstructions of early Roman society, but many central questions central to the genre remain opaque: Who watched it? Where was it performed? Who was it for? This seminar explores the social, literary, and material background of Roman comedy, from its Greek exemplars and an efflorescence in the Middle Republic, to its decline (and semi-revival) in the Imperial period.
