Octavia : a play attributed to Seneca by Pseudo-Seneca( )

The historical tragedy Octavia focuses on Nero's divorce from the princess Octavia, Claudius' daughter by Valeria Messalina, and on the emperor's subsequent marriage to Poppaea Sabina. This book includes a full-length introduction, a new edition of the text based on a fresh examination of the manuscripts, and a detailed commentary dealing with textual, linguistic, and literary points. Spanning three days in June AD 62, the tragic action of the play ends with Octavia's deportation to the island of Pandateria, where she would be executed shortly afterwards

Tragedies by Lucius Annaeus Seneca( Book )

"Octavie est une oeuvre d'exception : c'est le seul exemple intégralement conservé d'un genre exclusivement romain, la tragédie " prétexte " dont le sujet est emprunté à l'histoire nationale et non à la légende. Même si les manuscrits qui nous transmettent la pièce l'attribuent au philosophe Sénèque, l'identité de son auteur nous est inconnue - il s'agirait d'un contemporain de Néron, proche de la cour impériale. En même temps qu'une oeuvre littéraire forte, une tragédie destinée à la récitation publique et à la lecture, l'Octavie est un exceptionnel document historique sur la période néronienne : ce drame nous donne à Ile siècle une remarquable analyse de la tyrannie
