I confess, I was privileged to study at Chapel Hill when Professor Ullman had already established a classics department of epochal distinction. Seneca was already a friend--Thank you Dartmouth College. Now that friendship was enhanced by such as we shall not see again. Imagine Berthe Marti and Ullman at dinner together. Berthold Louis Ullman introduced me to such distant epigoni as Alberto Mussato and Coluccio Salutate. One of the very few manuscripts in Salutate's own hand is of the Tragedies and Mussato's Ecerinis.
Now, Ullman and Marti are as one in dust with Seneca, Salutate and Mussato. I too will undergo that last state change and so will you reader. I feel little pride in my own obsessional textual reading of the Tragedies, but I am proud to form part of so distinguised a vein of dust.
This typically brilliant and insightful contribution by Ullman brings back all the intellectual excitement of the Senecan rebirth of the mid-20th century.
