Syllabus(s):
This course will introduce students to the most representative work of the Roman comic playwright, T. Maccius Plautus (d.184 BCE). Although his Latin is somewhat archaic, it is quite simple and fairly easy to translate. The course will focus on improving students' reading skills and at the same time expanding their knowledge of Latin grammar and syntax. Students will also examine the author's language and style, and discuss his texts in their historical context.
