Most widely held works by Lucius Annaeus Seneca
Octavia a play attributed to Seneca by Rolando Ferri( Computer File )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,055 libraries worldwide
The historical tragedy Octauia focuses on Nero's divorce from the princess Octavia and subsequent marriage to Poppaea Sabina. The book includes a full length introduction, a new edition of the text based on a fresh examination of the manuscripts, and a detailed commentary dealing with textual, linguistic, and literary points
The elder Seneca declamations by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )
11 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in English and Latin and held by 965 libraries worldwide
Roman secondary education aimed principally at training future lawyers and politicians. Under the late Republic and the Empire, the main instrument was an import from Greece -- declamation, the making of practice-speeches on imaginary subjects. There were two types of such speeches: controversiae on law-court themes, suasoriae on delibertaive topics. On both types a prime source of our knowledge is the work of Lucius Annaeus Seneca, a Spaniard from Cordoba, father of the distinguished philosopher and stylist. Towards the end of his long life (?55 B.C. - ? A.D. 40) he collected together under the title (it would seem) Oratorum et rhetorum sententiae, divisiones, colores, ten books devoted to controversiae (some only preserved in excerpt) and at least one (surviving) to suasoriae. These books contained his memories of the famous rhetorical teachers and practitioners of his day: their lines of argument, their methods of approach, their idiosyncracies, and above all their epigrams. The extracts from the disclaimers, though scrappy, throw invaluable light on the influences that coloured the styles of most pagan (and many Christian) writers of the Empire. Unity is provided by Seneca's own contribution, the lively prefaces, engaging anecdote about speakers, writers and politicians, the brisk criticism of declamatory excess
Two faces of Oedipus : Sophocles' Oedipus tyrannus and Seneca's Oedipus by Sophocles( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 368 libraries worldwide
"Sophocles' "Oedipus tyrannus" is the most famous of ancient tragedies and a literary masterpiece. It is not, however, the only classical dramatization of Oedipus' quest to discover his identity. Seneca composed a fine, but neglected and often disparaged Latin tragedy on the same subject, which, in some ways, comes closer to our common understanding of the Oedipus myth." In new translations by Frederick Ahl, readers can compare the two versions.--[book cover]

Die Suasorien des älteren Seneca : Einleitung, Text und Kommentar by Stefan Feddern( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in German and held by 32 libraries worldwide
This new edition of The Suasoriae of Seneca the Elder contains, in addition to the original text, its first-ever commentary, providing helpful assistance with the hard-to-read declamations. The introduction addresses problems in Seneca the Elder scholarship (the poor state of The Suasoriae's written record, for instance) and with ancient declamation. All those interested in scholastic rhetoric and the culture of the early empire will find in this book an enlightening study of a neglected area of research
