120 editions published between 1543 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 1,342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A violent tragedy by a contemporary of Nero, in a faithful and uncut translation by one of our leading dramatists. Atreus, Agamemnon's father, takes revenge on his brother Thyestes by murdering Thyestes's sons and serving their flesh up for their father's dinner. 'a bleakly eloquent new translation... leaves you deeply impressed' - Sunday Times 'It is a sign of Ms Churchill's success that, without rubbing in any parallels, her version constantly prompts thoughts... of the ethics of revenge, of the latest reports from Rwanda, of what has happened in its time on all five continents' - Sun
De clementia by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

180 editions published between 1606 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Soon after Nero's accession in 54 CE, his tutor, the philosopher Seneca (c. 4 BCE-65 CE), addressed to his young pupil an essay called De Clementia in which he offered advice on how to behave in his new role. In it Seneca urges Nero to exercise clementia, that is, to think very hard before using his absolute power to execute any of his opponents or rivals and instead to err on the side of generosity and so to inspire gratitude and affection rather than hatred. In the opening sentence of the work, Seneca cleverly states that he is presenting the treatise to Nero as a 'mirror' (speculum) of himself. In other words, this is the Roman version of the 'Mirror of Princes' familiar to us from later eras." "This is the first full philological edition of the De Clementia in English. It includes the text with apparatus criticus, a new translation, a substantial introduction, and detailed commentary on matters of textual criticism, literary criticism and issues of socio-political, historical, cultural, and philosophical significance. The notes illuminate Seneca's language and thought through extensive citation of parallel passages from his other writings, from those of other imperial Latin authors, and from other relevant works, including kingship treatises and panegyrical texts." "The introduction includes discussion of Seneca's life, relationship with Nero, writings, and philosophy; the date, genre, scope, structure, and argument of De Clementia; the concept of clementia; kingship theory in Greek literature and Republican Rome; Stoic views on kingship and clementia; the relationship between De Clementia and De Ira; kingship in Seneca's tragedies; and the afterlife and influence of De Clementia."--Jacket

Seneca's method is to survey the theories of major authorities on the subject at hand, so his work is a guide to Greek and Roman thinking about the heavens

Letters from a Stoic. Epistulae morales ad Lucilium by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

320 editions published between 1469 and 2014 in 13 languages and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The power and wealth which Seneca the Younger (C.4 B.C.- A.D. 65) acquired as Nero's minister were in conflict with his Stoic beliefs. Nevertheless he was the outstanding figure of his age. The Stoic philosophy which Seneca professed in his writings, later supported by Marcus Aurelius, provided Rome with a passable bridge to Christianity. Seneca's major contribution to Stoicism was to spiritualize and humanize a system which could appear cold and unrealistic

Tragédies by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

143 editions published between 1611 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seneca (c. 4-65 CE) authored verse tragedies that strongly influenced Shakespeare and other Renaissance dramatists. Plots are based on myth, in keeping with classical tradition, but themes reflect imperial Roman politics. Powerful rhetoric conveys intensity and the perspective is much bleaker than in Seneca's prose writings
Octavia by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

57 editions published between 1566 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Octavia is a work of exceptional historical and dramatic interest. It is the only surviving complete example of the Roman historical drama known as the fabula praetexta. Written shortly after Nero's death by an unknown author, the play deals with events at the court of Nero in the decisive year 62 CE, for which it is the earliest extant (almost contemporary) literary source: Nero's divorce from his stepsister Octavia and marriage to his mistress Poppaea Sabina; the quelling of the popular riots which followed; Octavia's deportation to exile and death. The play's overt themes of sex, murder, politics, and power inform an action which is no simple indictment of Nero, rather a dramatization of imperial autocracy, political causation, and the perceptions and constructions of history. The play appealed to the Renaissance and influenced Renaissance drama and seventeenth- and eighteenth-century historical opera." "Neglected throughout most of the twentieth century, this lyrical and spectacular play has only recently begun to receive appropriate scholarly attention. This new edition of Octavia attempts to present this important play to as wide a readership as possible. It offers a new Latin text, an English verse translation designed for both performance and serious study, and a detailed commentary on the play which is not only exegetic but analytic and interpretative. A substantial introduction discusses the play dramatically, locates it in its historical and theatrical context, and traces its influence on European drama and opera."--Jacket
