Seneca, Lucius Annaeus, born at Corduba (Cordova) C.5 or 4 B.C. of a noble and wealthy family, spent an ailing childhood and youth at Rome in an aunt's care. He was victim of life-long neurosis but became famous in rhetoric, philosophy, money-making, and imperial service. After some disgrace during Claudius' reign he became tutor and then, in A.D. 54, advising minister to Nero, some of whose worst misdeed he did not prevent. Involved (innocently?) in a conspiracy, he killed himself by order in A.D. 65. Wealthy, he preached indifference to wealth; evader of pain and death, he preached scorn of both; and there were other contrasts between practice and principle

Imperial Romans EI09 ( file )
in English and held by 51 libraries worldwide
This collection of fifteen documents centers primarily on the city of Rome, and secondarily on the Roman Empire at the height of the imperial period. All documents are in English (and some are also in Latin). Most focus on the first century AD, particularly from the death of Augustus in 14 AD to the accession of Trajan in 98 AD, with less emphasis on the principate of Augustus itself and on the period of 99-192 AD. The most comprehensive studies for an overall understanding of Imperial Roman history and ethnography are: Carcopino, Rostovtsev, Lewis and Reinhold, and Pellisson. Both Carcopino and Pellisson are chiefly concerned with the daily life of the citizens of Rome, while Rostovtsev deals with the social and economic history of the empire, and Lewis and Reinhold with imperial policies and administration, economic life, society and culture, life in the municipalities and provinces, the Roman army, law, and religion (particularly with the rise and eventual triumph of Christianity). The works by Columella present one of the most comprehensive and systematic of all treatises by a Roman writer on agricultural affairs and animal husbandry. Loane presents a detailed study of the provisioning of the city of Rome (50 BC-200 AD), including data on various aspects of trade, manufacturing, and other associated commercial activities. Rivenburg gives an account of what Seneca thought about the fashionable life and manners of this day (i. e., 35-65 AD). Tanzier, an archaeologist, attempts to study the life of the common people of Pompeii as revealed through their graffiti, friezes, and wall paintings which were preserved in the ashes resulting from the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. The documents by Pliny the Elder are all from his Natural History, and deal with ethnometeorology and ethnogeography, ethnosociology, ethnopsychology and ethoanatomy, the medicinal use of plants, and a study of metals, minerals and a history of art

Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso) was born at Sulmo in central Italy in 43 BC. After holding some minor judicial positions, he abandoned a career in public service for writing, and was soon acknowledged as the leading Roman poet of his generation. But in AD 8 he was suddenly banished by the Emperor Augustus for reasons which remain the subject of much speculation. Despite complaints and pleas to Augustus, and later to his successor, Tiberius, Ovid remained in exile until his death in AD 17

Barnes & Noble Classics pulls together a constellation of influences&#151;biographical, historical, and literary&#151;to enrich each reader's understanding of these enduring works. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt class=MsoNormal>First published in 8 A.D., Ovid's Metamorphoses remains one of the most accessible and attractive avenues to the riches of Greek mythology. Beginning with the creation of the universe and ending with the death and deification of Julius Caesar, Ovid's masterful epic poem features a rich assortment of tales, including those of Jason and the Argonauts, Orpheus and Eurydice, the Trojan War, Echo and Narcissus, the slaying of the Minotaur, Daedalus and Icarus, Hercules, Aeneas and Dido, the wedding of Perseus and Andromeda, and many others. These stories all have one element in common: transformation. Mortals become gods, animals turn to stone, and humans change into flowers, trees, or stars. Mingling pathos, humor, beauty, and cruelty, Ovid reveals how the endless ebb and flow of the universe itself is mirrored in the often paradoxical and always arbitrary fate of the poem's characters, both human and divine. A cosmic comedy of manners, Metamorphoses was read with delight in Ovid's own time and continues to charm audiences today, providing a treasure trove of myth and legend from which the whole of Western art and literature has derived incalculable inspiration. <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Robert Squillace teaches Cultural Foundations courses in the General Studies Program of New York University. He has published extensively on the field of modern British literature, most notably in his study Modernism, Modernity and Arnold Bennett (Bucknell University Press, 1997). His recent teaching has involved him deeply in the world of the ancients. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, the medievalist Angela Jane Weisl. Squillace also wrote the Introduction and Notes for the Barnes & Noble Classics edition of Homer's Odyssey
