Abstract

The article studies the models of elderly representations in the Classical comedy which spur formation of the ageism. In the selected comedies of Aristophanes, Menander, Plautus and Terence, both stereotyped and individual portrayals of late adulthood are developed in the family context. The senior dramatis personae are often generalized characters with an overly exaggerated negative trait. Yet the gerontological group consisting of farmer Strepsiades, the Grouch, avaricious Euclio and others form ambivalent view of old age.
