La funzione del prologo in Nevio digital
formato: Articolo | AEVUM - 2010 - 1

Plautus’ prologi are only for introduction and inform about the play plot. Terence’s prologi include literary criticism or personal attacks. Terence has been supposed to be the inventor of this sort of prologus, but some fragments, where the poet appears to speak in the first person, suggest that Naevius used the prologus for polemic purposes well before him. On the ground of textual details it is not unlikely that Terence’s prologi have been inspired by Naevius. Critical-personal prologi were long-lasting in Latin literature among the authors of togatae. Several fragments of Afranius may suggest a similar use.
