Three tragedies by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

2,248 editions published between 1475 and 2015 in 14 languages and held by 6,990 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

De clementia by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

187 editions published between 1606 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 1,249 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

Thyestes by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

104 editions published between 1543 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,099 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ancient Greece, the Kingdom of Pisa. King Pelops has declared his bastard child Chrysippus heir to the throne. His queen Hippodamia convinces Pelops' rightful heirs, her sons Atreus and Thyestes, to kill their half-brother. So begins the infamous story of a deposed king who eats his own children, after being served them in a feast by his brother. In this modern version, reimagined by four young writers, the boundaries of Seneca's play have been blown out to encompass the matrix of killings in the original myth. A series of moments between atrocities, Thyestes explores the constant that has underpinned human nature across the centuries: that man is brutal, capable of anything. And in the spaces between the banal and the ordinary, terrifying acts occur

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

26 editions published between 1969 and 2014 in English and held by 1,005 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
Naturales quaestiones by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

23 editions published between 1971 and 1992 in 4 languages and held by 924 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Seneca (c. 4-65 CE) devotes most of Naturales Quaestiones to celestial phenomena. In Book 1 he discusses fires in the atmosphere; in 2, lightning and thunder; in 3, bodies of water. 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

Vom glückseligen Leben by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

203 editions published between 1496 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Römer entwickelten nicht nur eine besonders knappe und prägnante Sprache, sie kamen in ihrer Schrift nicht nur mit einem Minimum an Buchstaben aus, sondern interessierten sich auch für Naturwissenschaft und Philosophie, die sie von den Griechen gelernt hatten. Am wichtigsten war für die römischen Philosophen nicht die Frage nach der Entstehung der Welt oder der Beweis mathematischer Regeln, sondern die Bestimmung der richtigen Lebensweise in der Gemeinschaft und für den einzelnen. Wegen dieses vorrangigen Interesses und aufgrund vieler Gemeinsamkeiten in der gesellschaftlichen Realität zwischen dem 1. Jh. n. Chr. und unserer Gegenwart, sprechen uns die Gedanken des stoischen Philosophen Lucius Annaeus Seneca aus Corduba so unmittelbar an. Im vorliegenden Buch sind aus seinem Werk drei Texte versammelt, die an Aktualität nichts zu wünschen übrig lassen: Vom glückseligen Leben, Von der Kürze des Lebens sowie die Trostschrift aus dem Exil an seine Mutter Helvia. Herausgegeben und übersetzt von Lenelotte Möller. Lucius Annaeus Seneca (um 4 v. Chr. - um 65 n. Chr.) gehörte zu den herausragenden Geistesgröen des 1. Jahrhundert n. Chr. Unter ihm verlagert die stoische Philosophie ihren Schwerpunkt zur Ethik hin. Das Interesse an Kosmos und der Natur verringert sich zugunsten der existentiellen Befindlichkeit des Individuums
