Letters from a Stoic : Epistulae morales ad Lucilium by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )
315 editions published between 1470 and 2017 in 12 languages and held by 3,699 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

Seneca's Thyestes by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )
62 editions published between 1560 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,364 libraries worldwide
This new edition of 'Seneca's Thyestes' offers a comprehensive introduction, newly edited Latin text, an English verse translation designed for both performance and high-level academic study, and a detailed exegetic, analytic, and interpretative commentary on the play. The aim throughout has been to elucidate the text dramatically as well as philologically, and to locate the play firmly in its contemporary historical and theatrical context and in the ensuing literary and dramatic tradition. As such, the reception of the play by European dramatists is given especial emphasis in the introduction and throughout the commentary; this and the accessible notes on the text make this edition of particular use not only to scholars and students of classics, but also of literature and drama, and to anyone interested in the cultural dynamics of literary reception and in the interplay between theatre and history

Seneca's Hercules furens : a critical text with introduction and commentary by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )
30 editions published between 1490 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 690 libraries worldwide
Juno, wife of Jove (Jupiter) is jealous of Alcmene, mother of Hercules by Jove, and has been persecuting Hercules by imposing labours on him, through her intermediary, the tyrant Eurystheus. The final labour, which Hercules has just completed, was the bringing up of Cereberus, the three-headed watchdog of the Underworld, up to the world above. To do this, Hercules has achieved the astonishing feat, never before accomplished, of returning from the realm of Death. Juno has now decided that since labours cannot break Hercules, she will turn his own strength against him, by driving him mad when he returns to his home town of Thebes. In his madness, he will commit atrocities that will preclude his ascension into Heaven, which Juno is determined to prevent. This classic story is Ranjit Bolt's translation of Seneca's poetic tale, which reveals the passion for rhetoric that was to have such a strong influence on Elizabethan drama and particularly on Marlowe and the young Shakespeare

Dialogues and essays by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )
6 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
"In these dialogues and essays the Stoic philosopher Seneca outlines his thoughts on how to live in a troubled world. Tutor to the young emperor Nero, Seneca wrote exercises in practical philosophy that draw upon contemporary Roman life and illuminate the intellectual concerns of the day. They also have much to say to the modern reader, as Seneca ranges widely across subjects such as the shortness of life, tranquillity of mind, anger, mercy, happiness, and grief at the loss of a loved one. Seneca's accessible, aphoristic style makes his writing especially attractive as an introduction to Stoic philosophy, and belies its reputation for austerity and dogmatism. This edition combines a clear and modern translation with an introduction to Seneca's life and philosophical interests, and helpful notes."--Book cover
