This difficult task, when at first denied leisure and retirement it could not be performed; after the Death of my Dear Wife, being lonely, with frequent and unseasonable Studies that I might the less think on my Grief I have at last finished this, according to my slender capacity. But indeed in these Disquisitions (which the Anatomy of the Brain and its Appendixes, hath lately and more exactly shown) as we have entered into a by-way, and not before trodden, there was a necessity to lead thee, through some sharp and stony ways, beset with bushes and thorns, which might offend thee"--Preface.

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
