Editorial Reviews

Review

"Taken together, this collection lends its considerable weight to ways of reading Seneca that have been considered risky or even insupportable for too long, and that is all to the good. " --BCMR

Book Description

Many modern critics have treated Seneca as an innovator in historical understandings of 'selfhood' and self-awareness. This volume of essays by internationally well-known scholars promises to reshape our understanding of Seneca, and to establish once and for all his place as a student of the human psyche.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The articles that make up this selection are very good. Elizabeth Asmis' article about the concept of fortune in Seneca and David Wray's about Senecan tragedy are SO good. The articles from Bran Inwood and Christopher Gill are the only ones to have been published elsewhere before.

The only bad thing about this book is its price. I am very happy to have bought it, don't regret it whatsoever and I loved reading the book. I've read so much about Seneca already, and almost all of his works, but some articles in this book do bring some very fresh interpretations to scene.

Nonetheless, you might want to think twice before buying it, because it's expensive. Buying it or not should depend, I think, on how much this book might help you in your studies. That might or not make it worth it.
