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 sine 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

Soon after Nero's accession in 54 CE, his tutor, the philosopher Seneca, addressed to his young pupil an essay called De Clementia in which he offered advice on how to behave in his new role. 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 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; and the work's afterlife and influence

"Certains en ont assez de faire et de voir les mêmes choses, les gagne non la haine de la vie mais son ennui, pente où nous glissons, poussés par la philosophie elle-même, tandis que nous disons : "Jusque à quand les mêmes choses? Ne vais-je pas me réveiller, dormir, avoir faim, avoir froid, avoir chaud? Rien n'a de fin, toutes choses s'enchaînent en cercle, fuient et se suivent ... Je ne fais rien de nouveau, je ne vois rien de nouveau : on en a parfois jusqu'à la nausée." Nombreux sont-ils pour juger que vivre n'est pas atroce mais superflu. Porte-toi bien." (24, ʹ 26)

On benefits by Lucio Anneo Séneca( Book )

10 editions published between 1884 and 2020 in 3 languages and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lucius Annaeus Seneca (4 BCE 65 CE) was a Roman Stoic philosopher, dramatist, statesman, and advisor to the emperor Nero, all during the Silver Age of Latin literature. The Complete Works of Lucius Annaeus Seneca is a fresh and compelling series of new English-language translations of his works in eight accessible volumes. Edited by world-renowned classicists Elizabeth Asmis, Shadi Bartsch, and Martha C. Nussbaum, this engaging collection restores Seneca whose works have been highly praised by modern authors from Desiderius Erasmus to Ralph Waldo Emerson to his rightful place among the classical writers most widely studied in the humanities. On Benefits, written between 56 and 64 CE, is a treatise addressed to Seneca s close friend Aebutius Liberalis. The longest of Seneca s works dealing with a single subject how to give and receive benefits and how to express gratitude appropriately On Benefits is the only complete work on what we now call gift exchange to survive from antiquity. Benefits were of great personal significance to Seneca, who remarked in one of his later letters that philosophy teaches, above all else, to owe and repay benefits well. -- Amazon.com
