The elder Seneca declamations by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

3 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 811 WorldCat member 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

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
