Project
   
In Unit Five we shall read three plays by Terence (c. 186 -159 BCE), the last great writer of Roman comedy. In particular, we shall examine the relationship between the author and his public—a relationship that was almost as clearly defined as that between Aristophanes and the Athenians.
