Fabula togata. Didacticism during the period of cultural transformation

Abstract

The author presents the views of Roman comedy writers of the 2nd c. BC (Titinnius, Lucius Afranius, Quinctius Atta) on moral conventions and manners during the period of cultural transformation.
The author presents the views of Roman comedy writers of the 2nd c. BC (Titinnius, Lucius Afranius, Quinctius Atta) on moral conventions and manners during the period of cultural transformation. She asserts that the Hellenistic influence on Roman literature was accompanied by a change in Roman morals and customs, which was reflected in the native comedy called fabula togata. Several examples of this phenomenon are given. Among others, when talking about feelings, she recalls the content of Afranius’s comedy Cinerarius: Alius est Amor, Alius Cupido. frg. III Daviault [=D], or of the play Omen: …amabit sapiens, cupient ceteri. frg. III D. Finally, several universal human ideas are also singled out based on selected passages of togata.
