Primary Instructor:

Terence was one of the most widely quoted authors in antiquity, in part because everyone had read him: there were revivals after his death, to be sure, but his plays had also become part of the school curriculum by the end of the 2nd c BCE. We will read two of his plays, the Hecyra and the Adelphoe, and focus on his place within the tradition of New Comedy as well as in Latin literature more broadly.

Course Requirements:

Three-hour exams; paper

Intended Audience:

Advanced undergraduates and graduate students

Class Format:

Two meetings per week

NOTE: Data maintained by department in Wolverine Access. If no textbooks are listed below, check with the department.

I will be in touch about texts prior to the start of the Winter term. If some of you have read either the Eunuchus or Adelphoe before (popular plays with good commentaries), we will choose something else. The Hecyra now has a green + yellow commentary, and I have school commentaries for the 3 other Terentian plays. Feel free to write me if you have questions or comments.
