Roman Tragedy XII: Humanism in Roman Tragedy

Summing up our stoic tragedies

Discussion Prompts

  1. Do these tragedies achieve their goal of teaching about stoic philosophy? Why or why not?
  2. If you were to use theatre to teach stoicism, what would you do?
  3. What do these plays have to say about being human today?
  4. What do these plays have to say about love, hate, grief, family, gender roles, etc.?

I have a BA in History and Classical Civilization from Loyola University Chicago and an MPH from Western Michigan University. I've been a geometry teacher, a religion teacher, a writing tutor. I'm a writer, a knitter, a dancer, a singer, an actor. And, yes, for fun I like to reread everything that was assigned while getting my classics degree.
