<< Unit 4: Plautus >>
   

Unit Four takes us to Rome, and Plautus (c. 254 - 184 BCE), whose modus operandi was to translate into Latin the plays of New Comedians such as Menander — or was it?

Students will consider the survival of Greek comedy on the Roman stage, as well as understand how these plays address the society of Rome itself.
