The aim of the course is to provide an in-depth understanding of the literary institutions of ancient Greece in their historical-cultural context and in relation to the European cultural tradition, through the direct and guided reading of texts in the original and with the aid of methodological approaches aimed at developing adequate analytical and argumentative skills.
THE ATHENIAN COMEDY BETWEEN THE FIFTH AND THE FOURTH CENTURY: ARISTOPHANES AND MENANDER
Please note: (1) knowledge of ancient Greek at University level is mandatory; (2) Erasmus students are kindly requested to contact the lecturer prior to classes starting.
The module aims to study the evolution of the comic genre in 5th and 4th-century Athens by taking as its paradigms 'The Knights' (424 BCE), the first of the surviving comedies to be both written and directed by Aristophanes, and 'The Epitrepontes' by Menander.
The analysis will focus mostly on the evolution of dramaturgical forms, style and meter.
- the text of the plays is that of the most accredited critical editions (Wilson's OCT for Aristophanes; Sandbach's OCT for Menander) and will be provided through the Moodle platform;
- the texts listed below in the field «Bibliografia Leganto»;
- further educational material will be provided by the lecturer.
Students are requested to get a paperback edition with translation, for example:
- in Italian: BUR Rizzoli (Knights) edited by Guido Paduano, and Oscar Mondadori (all Menander), edited by Guido Paduano (https://bur.rizzolilibri.it/libri/cavalieri/ --- https://www.oscarmondadori.it/libri/commedie-menandro/); Menandro, Il misantropo - L'arbitrato, a cura di Roberta Sevieri, Milano, La vita felice (https://bit.ly/3A6CebQ); Menandro, La donna di Samo - L'arbitrato, a cura di Mario Prosperi, Catanzaro, Rubbettino (https://www.store.rubbettinoeditore.it/catalogo/la-donna-di-samo-l-arbitrato/).
- in English: Henderson's LOEB (Knights) and Arnott's LOEB (Menander, vol. I).
