GREK 1916 Comedy Old and New (4 qtr. hrs.)
Reading and discussion of and experiment with comedies from ancient Rome and even more ancient Greece. We begin, however, with modernizations in American-musical form, and end with our own product in 21st-century emulation. Students' participation, even broad clownish histrionics, required. Students must also be eager to laugh– knowingly and intelligently, of course.
