Bust of Menander. Menander (ca. 291 BC Greek ), Greek dramatist , the chief representative of the New Comedy , was born in Athens . He was the son of well-to-do parents; his father Diopeithes is identified by some with the Athenian general and governor of the Thracian Chersonese known from the speech of Demosthenes De Chersoneso . He presumably derived his taste for the comic drama from his uncle Alexis He was the friend, associate, and perhaps pupil of Theophrastus , and was on intimate terms with Demetrius of Phalerum . He also enjoyed the patronage of Ptolemy Soter , the son of Lagus , who invited him to his court. But Menander, preferring the independence of his villa in the Peiraeus and the company of his mistress Glycera , refused. According to the note of a scholiast on the Ibis of Ovid , he was drowned while bathing, and his countrymen built him a tomb on the road leading to Athens, where it was seen by Pausanias . A well-known statue in the Vatican , formerly thought to represent Gaius Marius , is now generally supposed to be Menander, although some archaeologists dispute this, and it has also been identified with his statue in the theatre at Athens, also mentioned by Pausanias.

2. Menander (342 B.C. - 291 B.C.)
Biography of the Greek playwright menanderthe most gifted writer of New Comedy.
Menander After the Macedonian conquest, Greek comedy moved away from the daring personal and political satire of Aristophanes . Lacking complete political independance, writers of this New Comedy found themselves moving towards safer more mundane subject matter. They found their inspiration in the daily life of Athens. Their characters were drawn from the cooks, merchants, farmers and slaves of the city. According to ancient report, the most gifted of these new writers was Menander. Menander, the child of a distinguished family, wrote more than 100 plays during a career that spanned about thirty-three years. He was known for the delicacy and truthfulness of his characterizations, and his poetic style was often mentioned in the same breath as Homer's. Although he won first prize at only eight festivals, he did much to move comedy towards a more realistic representation of human life. Menander's characters spoke in the contemporary dialect and concerned themselves not with the great myths of the past, but rather with the everyday affairs of the people of Athens. His plots revolved around young boys in love with young girls, parents concerned with the misbehavior of their children, unwanted pregnancies, long-lost relatives, and all sorts of sexual misadventures. His first play

Purchase Plays by Menander
Menander, the son of Diopeithes, a well-known general, was born at Athens, B.C. 342. He passed his youth in the house of his uncle and received from him and from Theophrastus instruction in poetry and philosophy, probably deriving from the latter in some measure the knowledge of character for which he was noted. His first comedy was produced when he was twenty-one years of age, and from that time until his death, which occurred some thirty years later while bathing in the harbor of the Piraeus, he wrote more than a hundred plays, eight of them winning the prize. He was a disciple of the Epicurean school, and is described by Phaedrus as an effeminate voluptuary, while his amours with the courtesan, Glycera, were notorious. Menander is accepted as the best writer of the comedy of manners among the Greeks. We have a few specimens of the ingenuity of his plots in some of the plays of Terence, whom Julius Caesar used to call a demi-Menander. He was an imitator of Euripides , and we may infer from what Quintilian says of him that his comedies differed from the tragi-comedies of that poet only in the absence of mythical subjects and a chorus. Like Euripides, he was a good rhetorician, and Quintilian is inclined to attribute to him some orations published in the name of Charisius. The every-day life of his countrymen, and manners and characters of ordinary occurrence, were the objects of his imitation. His plots, though skillfully contrived, are somewhat monotonous, and there are few of his comedies which do not bring on the stage a harsh father, a profligate son and a roguish slave. Yet he was greatly esteemed in Athens, where a statue was erected to his memory in the theatre of Dionysus.

(342/1-292/1 B.C.E.)

By far the most important writer of New Comedy was Menander. Author of about 100 plays, Menander was regarded by the ancients as the greatest playwright of all. Myriad encomia have survived from his own time praising his veracity to nature, his inventive genius, etc. Plutarch preferred him to Aristophanes . Quintilian regarded him as perfection itself in speech, character analysis and in his portrait of life. Sadly the evidence that has survived does not confirm these extravagant opinions. Only one complete play is extant, Dyskolos , discovered in 1957. Substantial fragments exist of the Epitrepontes (The Arbitration), She Who Was Shorn, The Shield and The Woman of Samos. "Meager" fragments remain of about sixty other plays. Most scholars agree that his plays have not aged well. Erich Segal, for example, says, "...judging by the extant Menandrian drama he was no laugh riot. Rather his plays presented a series of polished sedate character studies of the Hellenistic leisure class. There were essentially unmusical (there were some cholral entr'actes) and uncomic (no gags)."

Menander (342-291): Athenian playwright, author of many comedies, which are only fragmentary preserved and best known from Roman adaptations. The comedies of the Athenian playwright Menander are completely different from those of Aristophanes Unfortunately, only one play, The bad-tempered man , survives, together with considerable portions of a further five. However, many of Menander's comedies were translated into Latin and adapted by authors like Terentius and Plautus, and these plays have survived. They were extremely popular. Julius Caesar , on crossing the Rubico , quoted Menander: "the die is cast". Pliny the Elder called the poet a man litterarum subtilitati sine aemulo genitus , "unrivalled for perception in literary knowledge". During the Renaissance, several of them were translated into modern languages. This brief article has been written to offer background information

    Menander More Images Menander - Birth:
    Menander was born in about 342 B.C. in Athens. Menander's father was the general Diopeithes. Menander - Training:
    Menander learned philosophy from Theophrastus, a philosopher known for his "characters". Menander - Plays:
    Menander wrote over a hundred plays, his first at age 22. Eight of Menander's comedies were prize-winners. Menander is thought to have imitated Euripides and was in turn adapted by Roman writers of comedy, Terence and Plautus. Unlike the classical writers who wrote mythical plots or political commentary, Menander, a Hellenistic Greek, chose as topics for his plays aspects of daily life. His characters were stern fathers, young lovers, crafty slaves, and more. Menander - Survival:
    One play by Menander was discovered in 1957. It is the Dyskolos, which won a prize in the Dionysia in 315. In addition, a few fragments of other comedies have survived, as well as traces in the comedy of Terence and Plautus.

    Translator W. G. Arnott
      Menander, the dominant figure in New Comedy, wrote over 100 plays. By the Middle Ages they had all been lost. Happily papyrus finds in Egypt during the past century have recovered one complete play, substantial portions of six others, and smaller but still interesting fragments. Menander was highly regarded in antiquity and his plots, set in Greece, were adapted for the Roman world by Plautus and Terence. Geoffrey Arnott's new Loeb edition is in three volumes. Volume I contains six plays, including the only complete one extant, Dyskolos (The Peevish Fellow), which won first prize in Athens in 317 BCE , and Dis Expaton (Twice a Swindler), the original of Plautus' Two Bacchises Volume II contains the surviving portions of ten Menander plays. Among these are the recently published fragments of Misoumenos ("The Man She Hated"), which sympathetically presents the flawed relationship of a soldier and a captive girl; and the surviving half of Perikeiromene ("The Girl with Her Hair Cut Short"), a comedy of mistaken identity and lovers' quarrel.

    To Guide Entry
    As an E.S.O.L. teacher (English to Speakers of Other Languages) on the middle school level in New Haven, I am always on the lookout for simple plays to enhance students’ enjoyment of oral reading. After a perusal of many Greek comedies spanning the Old, Middle, and New periods, I chose, for this year’s unit, an example of the latter, The Grouch,1 by Menander, one of New Comedy’s foremost playwrights. I feel that the slapstick nature of the piece in addition to the theme of young love are particularly appealing to middle and high school level E.S.O.L. students, and can be incorporated into regular English, History, or Drama classes as well. Scaled-down drawings (thanks to Bobby Banquer, an artist and special education teacher at Celentano School) of masks on graph paper at the end of the unit lend themselves to art classes in particular but are simple enough for the regular classroom teacher or student to reproduce. Part of the play’s attractiveness to me was its brevity (65 pages) and the realistic plot which even now, over 2000 years later, is a relevant contemporary theme. Add to this the fact that there can be as few as three or as many as thirteen parts (no more than three speaking actors were allowed on stage at the same time—presumably a rule of competitions like the Greater Dionysia and the Lenaea—to be explained later). This is especially suited to E.S.O.L. classes which vary considerably in size throughout the day, for those teachers looking for an “one-size-fits-all” play. Finally, and most importantly for beginning level or remedial readers are the realistic speech patterns employed. All the marks of everyday speech are there—the colloquial idiom, the simple clear vocabulary, the pauses, repetitions, and broken sentences—making the play truly accessible to today’s student.

    Ulpia Oescus: mosaic of "The Achaeans of Menander"
    Near the Temple of Fortuna at Roman Oescus is a building which contains a colorful floor mosaic, dated to the time of the emperor Septimus Severus (AD 193-211). In the center is a theatrical scene showing three masked participants and one man without a mask. On the white background, over the figures, is the inscription "Achaeans of Menander" ([M]ENANDROU AXAIOI; figs.1), referring to a lost work by Menander (342-291 BC), the famous Athenian comic playwright. His comedy "The Achaeans" was unknown prior to the 1948 discovery of this inscription. The existence of this play was then confirmed in 1961 by a papyrus from Oxyrhynchus in Egypt (see AR 2,2), containing an alphabetical list of Menander's works. Fig.1: The mosaic of the "Achaeans" by Menander ( after T. Ivanov 1954 Interpretation of the personages in this intriguing masked scene is still unresolved. The name "Achaeans" naturally suggests that they were prominent persons from the Achaean world. As interpreted by T. Ivanov, Menander drew his subject from Book I of the Iliad of Homer, on the quarrel between Agamemnon (the actor on the left) and Achilles (at right) over the damsel Briseis. The old man is Nestor - king of the island of Pylos, who tries to reconcile the men. The young man without a mask is Patroclus - Achilles' true friend who, after the quarrel, accompanied him to the ships of the Myrmidons.

    MENANDER This biography was originally published in A New General Biographical Dictionary. Hugh James Rose. London, 1857. p. 89. MENANDER, the most celebrated of the Greek comic poets, was born at Athens B.C. 341. His father's name was Diopithes; and his master in philosophy was Theophrastus, according to the testimony of Pamphila. He is considered as the introducer of the New Comedy , which refined upon the grossness and licence of the old, and banished living and real characters from the stage. The title of the poet of nature was certainly his due, according to the exclamation of Aristophanes the grammarian, "O Menander and Nature, which of you copied from the workmanship of the other?" Quintilian gives him the fullest praise for his strength and consistency in the display of the characters of his dramas; and Ovid dwells upon the same merit, in enumerating this poet among those whose fame would be immortal. Julius Caesar , in calling the elegant Terence "dimidiatus Menander," and at the same time lamenting his deficiency in the
