SENECA, V.04: EPISTLES: EPISTLES 1-65
Harvard University P, 1996 - Biography & Autobiography - 488 pages
Seneca became famous in rhetoric, philosophy, money-making, and imperial service.We have Seneca's philosophical or moral essays (ten of them traditionally called Dialogues) - on providence, steadfastness, the happy life, anger, leisure, tranquility, the brevity of life, gift-giving, forgiveness - and treatises on natural phenomena. Also extant are 124 epistles, in which he writes in a relaxed style about moral and ethical questions, relating them to personal experiences; a skit on the official deification of Claudius, Apocolocyntosis (in Loeb number 15); and nine rhetorical tragedies on ancient Greek themes. Many epistles and all his speeches are lost.
